PIPS Larne has thanked a number of fundraisers in the borough.
The charityacknowledged the contribution of Ernie Wright and Roddensvale school for the donation of £75 raised in memory of his son Thomas (Tucker) Wright. PIPS Larne would also like to thank Frances Bird and the staff of Clareview Nursing Home for their very generous donation of £50.
PIPS Larne would also like to give a massive thank you to Larne ASDA, its staff and all its customers who were amazing with their support for the charity’s two bag pack days onMarch 29 and April 19 which in total raised a brilliant £1408.76.
The purpose for the bag packs was to raise the funds to pay the architect for plans to bring the PIPS Larne premises up to the required standards for health and safety and to provide disability access and amenities,
The charity says that this has been more than met by the amount raised and the excess will go towards the refurbishment itself.
PIPS Larne would also like to thank Glenn McCollum who ran an X Box 360 FIFA Tournament in the Coast Road Inn Glenarm in aid of the charity which raised £220.66.
