Larne YMCA youth club members had a very late night recentlywhen 30 young people and six staff members took part in their annual stay awake.

This year, the theme was Greek gods with participants assigned to various teams with names such as Aphrodite, Athena, Poseidon and Hades; Zeus and Hera.

Teams took part in a series of tasks during the night including capture the flag, Olympic Games, Greek mythology quiz and ultimate dodge ball with varying degrees of enthusiasm depending on energy levels.

The eventual winner of the marathon was team Hades, with “a night at the Colosseum” (Larne cinema) being the prize.

Leader-in-charge Dean Nutt commented: “This is now one of the highlights of our year and although it involved a lot of work and no sleep, it is well worth it; we had a great night of fun.

“A big thank you to all who participated and made the night so enjoyable; also thanks to Jana for costumes and props, our volunteers who gave up their home comforts for the night and our team of junior leaders who worked tirelessly through the event.”
