Larne teenager Peyton McConnell is organising a fundraising disco for the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice on Saturday, November 10 in Larne Football Club (LIPS) from 7pm.
Peyton, 15, who attends Larne High School, recently worked with the Cash For Kids charity at Cool FM and was so inspired by what they do, she and her family decided to organise an event of their own to help the hospice, which supports life-limited children and their families at Horizon House, Newtownabbey.
No fewer than 11 local DJs, who are friends, have agreed to play a half-hour set each for free. Peyton’s mum Paula and her family have also set up a ballot of goods donated and they will be selling Chinese lanterns with a special message inside to remember loved ones.
Local businessman David Foster has very kindly printed out the tickets free of charge and Mervyn McKay has given the football club free for the charity night.
Peyton and her family will be paying for the hire of decks and Peyton is hoping for a huge support from the people of Larne for the event. She has spent a long time planning this event and her dearest wish is to make lots of money for the Children’s hospice. For every £30 raised means one hour of specialist nurse care for a life-limited child, which makes a huge difference to these very special children.
Peyton, who is most grateful for all the support she has received, can be contacted on 07709831915 by anyone who would like to help.
