BALLYMACARBRY TIDY TOWNS

We are already planning our program of work for 2017!!!

We would ask you to keep any empty biscuit and sweet tins that you may have left over from the Christmas season. We plan to re-use these to place gifts in for next years annual Team Hope Shoe Box Appeal.

The empty containers may be useful for the families who may receive them, to re-use for the storage of goods.

We will have collection points in the Community Centre, the Montessori school and Ballymacarbry Primary School for 1 week starting on Monday 9th January.
We will store the containers until the Halloween break in 2017 when we will make them available so that people can fill the container with a range of simple Christmas gifts as you would with the shoe box.

Please keep us in mind before you ditch your tins…..

Friends of the Grant Family

Following the recent death of a second sibling and third member of the Grant Family from Huntington’s disease a group of family friends have come together to help with financial support. The aim is to raise funds through raffles, coffee mornings and small events.

The Friends of the Grant Family are holding a Fundraising Ceili in Ballymacarbry Community Centre Sunday 22nd January 2017 from 3pm to 6pm. Cost of entry is €10. Refreshments and spot prizes on the day.
