The amount was presented in gratitude for the "great support to Larne AC" in planning and staging the half marathon, Interclub race and other events during the year.

The same amount was also presented to David Hunter, CEO of Acceptable Enterprises Limited (AEL).

AEL operate a number of social enterprise businesses locally with the objective of providing paid employment and training for disadvantaged adults.

One of the businesses produces ‘Clearer Water’, bottled at source in Magheramorne just outside Larne.

The company provided the ethically-bottled water for runners during the Larne Half Marathon.

"With a workforce of 47 AEL is delivering great jobs and making a significant social impact in the town; we are delighted support the organisation and its objectives of job creation for all sections of the community," said a Larne AC spokesperson.
