We are Making it Home
7th Jun 2018 by Alison Irvine
Three years after launching our Opening New Doors appeal we are about to close it by MAKING IT HOME on a 35 mile sponsored walk from our former Headquarters Rathmore in Larne to our new home at Newport, Culcavy, just outside Hillsborough on Saturday 23 June 2018.
NI District Vice-President Trevor McCormick and District Trustee Drew Buchanan are encouraging many others to join them for part or all of the 35 mile route. Having initially set a £400,000 fundraising target for Newport back in 2014, at the start of our fundraising journey, we are delighted to say the final target for our sponsored walk is only £7,000 and once raised this will conclude our Opening New Doors Appeal.
You can sponsor Drew and his team mates Trevor, Gary and Jason here
Please Come Celebrate with Us!
We are going to have a grand celebration when we arrive at Newport, on completion of our walk and we invite you to join us at Newport at 7.00pm on Saturday 23 June 2018 for this. We plan to unveil the bricks purchased via our Buy a Brick appeal for Newport followed by a Barbeque, lighting a beacon at the camp fire and live music. If you would like to attend please contact NIHQ to register your attendance.
And…prior to all of this we are running an Inter-Battalion 'Just for Laughs' (competition with a small c) commencing at 6pm, which you are also very welcome to come along and spectate at.
If you have any queries regarding this event - if you would like to donate money directly, enter a Battalion team in the 'Just for Laughs competition or help with set up and stewarding at the event please contact Alison Irvine at NIHQ (028 9268 8444)
