Successful night at the NI Fundraising Dinner

2012-12-20T12:41:41+00:00 December 20th, 2012|

On the 13th of December we hosted a fundraising dinner at the magnificent Galgorm Manor in Ballymena. It was attended by over 200 people including board members and past staff and volunteers. The night was thoroughly enjoyed by all in attendance. It was encouraging to meet new people who were eager to hear about and support the work in South Africa. Our patron Andrew Trimble MC’ed the evening and Wayne McAfee did a presentation on the Academy and showed our own lip dub music video which got plenty of laughs. We raised over £5000 on the night and many people signed up to our Sponsor a Player scheme.
