Spring ball for children’s trip

AN entirely voluntary charitable organization which has been operating in the Newry & Mourne area for the last number of years is now launching in the local area.

Their goal is to raise funds to send local children with life limiting illnesses on a trip of a life time.

Each year a number of children are chosen or nominated by their school, family or friends.

This year they have six children who are being honoured at their 1st Spring Gala Ball being held in the Seagoe Hotel.

This will enable the charity to send the children to Euro Disney.

The Gala Ball will take place on Friday, March 23, and tickets cost £37.50

Compere for the evening will be James McGinn from the Europa Hotel and staff of BBC`s Lobby Lives.

After dinner entertainment will be Gene Fitzpatrick and music by Charisma followed by a disco.

Tickets are available from Seagoe Hotel or by contacting Denis Mulgrew on 07733 378 039 or Annie O`Hanlon 07876 545 515.
