Local community groups and organisations have received some vital support from Lurgan Credit Union.

On Saturday, April 23, they held a presentation for Clan na Gael.
This renewed sponsorship will assist in the purchase of playing gear and transport for the under-18 teams and lower, in order for them to play in matches in different locations and use new, high-quality equipment.
The Credit Union also made a presentation for the Marie Curie Fundraising Group.
This donation will help provide care for terminally ill patients in our community, who are given free care by the Marie Curie Group, and have been operating for the past 10 years.
