The Stables in Lurgan is the hottest spot in town this Friday night for a charity event in aid of Autism NI.

Daredevil Donna Mulholland has organised the gig to help raise funds as her daughter Leah has Autism.

DJ Pat Morgan will be spinning the decks on Friday (July 31) at 8pm and Donna has organised some amazing prizes kindly donated by local businesses.

Some prizes include getting your hair done by the magnificent Susan Doran or having a photo session with Marie Allen photographer.

Mum Donna is not just organising a charity night out but also will be jumping out of an aeroplane for charity.

Donna plans to do a skydive in Coleraine later in the summer to raise cash for Autism NI.

It’s been a tough road for the young mum who has been waiting a long time for a concrete diagnosis of three-year-old Leah’s autism.

The 25-year-old said she first noticed little Leah wasn’t developing quite like other babies at around six months old.

She didn’t seem to be talking, and initially thought she may be deaf. Donna and her partner, Michael Douglas, have been keen to help a charity which has been very supportive of their family.

Friday night in The Stables promises to be fun and for a great cause.

Donna is hoping more local businesses will donate to the raffle, and has asked that if they have anything she could raffle, to contact her on 07480 937 407.
