“Also included were other great prizes such as a cinema bundle from Jet centre Coleraine, perfume and chocolates from volunteers at Samaritans.
“The Branch relies on donations and fundraising events like this to keep in operation. We are delighted with the amount raised are are grateful to everyone who helped in any way to make this event as successful as it was.
“We would finally like to thank Declan and staff at The Top House for all their help and allowing us to use the Top House for the evening.”
