Rural and farming charity, Rural Support, is calling on Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council residents, councillors and local businesses to attend the ‘Rural Support Roadshow – Call to Action’ as the charity rolls in to Coleraine for the third event in a series of roadshows across Northern Ireland.

Supported by the charity’s CSR partner, local wind energy company, Simple Power, the ‘Rural Support Roadshow – Call to Action’ takes place in Coleraine Town Hall on Wednesday 28th September from 12 noon – 1pm.

The initiative enables Rural Support to meet with local communications to demonstrate the support services on offer in each specific area through the charity’s dedicated helpline and mentoring programmes.

Rural Support Chief Executive, Jude McCann, said: “We would encourage all those attending the event to take up our call to action and pledge to support Rural Support and the services we offer.

“Whether this support is from financial assistance, awareness-building activities, volunteering or fundraising efforts, it all helps to improve our service offering and increase uptake of our services at a time when it is so greatly needed. The previous two events have been very successful with ministers, councillors and large numbers of local people engaging with us and learning how they can help through volunteering, fundraising and financial contributions.”

Simple Power Chief Executive, Philip Rainey commented: “We are proud to support the Rural Support Roadshows and assist the charity in getting out and about to meet local communities face-to-face to raise awareness of the charity in areas where their vital services are greatly needed.”

The ‘Rural Support Roadshow – Call to Action’ takes place in Coleraine Town Hall on Wednesday 28th September 2016 from 12.00-1.00pm and spaces are limited. To reserve your place at the event, email melissa@ruralsupport.org.uk.
