Gaming day fundraiser

Arkham Gaming Centre in Gleno held a family gaming and fun day in aid of the Help for Heroes charity, raising the fantastic sum of £686.

The event offered various activities and attractions for all the family to enjoy, including craft stalls, military vehicle displays, military memorabilia displays, face painting, a bouncy castle, and even head-shaving.

The local community association also got involved by washed cars at Gleno Dairy to help raise more money. In the evening, an audience enjoyed a special performance of The 39 Steps by the acclaimed Wireless Mystery Theatre, supported by dance troupe The Stompin’ Hepcatz.

The organisers of the event wish to thank Gleno Community Association, Gleno Young Farmers, Translink, Carrickfergus Sea Cadets, Grey Fort, Killyglen Accordion Band, Facetastic, Sam Beattie and the members of Arkham Gaming Centre for providing help, support, transport and displays.

Thanks also go to the vendors and traders who provided stalls and food to those who enjoyed the day, and to anyone who helped in any way.

The biggest thanks of all goes to those who contributed to the charity.
