Please accept this donation of £2600 for the CRY Northern Ireland fund.
The money was raised during a steak barbecue fundraising event which took place on 17th August at the Anglers and Fisherman’s sporting club in Ballinamallard, Fermanagh.
Approximately 100 people attended, each buying BBQ tickets worth £10. The additional money was raised via a raffle, three Dutch auctions, private contributions (including £100 from the club) and some proceeds from the sale of CDs (by the musicians who performed on the night).
Raffle prizes included bottles of spirits, gift sets, and several vouchers for meals, groceries and haircuts. The Dutch auctions were for an antique plaque; a painting by Patrick Maguire; and a day trip for 6 people on a Puffin boat.
It was a successful event, attended mainly by family and friends of my brother Richard Martin, who died in November 2004 of WPW syndrome.
Special thanks to Margaret Conlon for providing salad free of charge; and to Dessie Morrison for paying for the entertainment.
