The annual Northern Ireland Farm Toy and Model Show has raised over £700 for CLIC Sargent’s Northern Ireland Homes from Home Appeal through a raffle and auction.
The event was held in Portrush, County Antrim on the 29 March 2013. In its eighth year, the event proved to be a great day out for all the family as well as serious collectors of farm toys and models.
CLIC Sargent volunteers, Colleen Bonner, Leslie McCloy and Rhonda Bell sold raffle tickets to help raise funds for children and young people with cancer.The grand prize for the raffle was a 32" LED full HD television, kindly donated by Northern Irelands ‘Cheapest Electrical Store’, Donaghy Bros.
CLIC Sargent fundraising manager, Christine McClune said: “We are so grateful to the Northern Ireland Farm Toy and Model Show for choosing CLIC Sargent as their charity partner for this year. Our volunteers had a great day at the event and the money raised is going to our Homes from Home Appeal.”
Northern Ireland Appeal
The Northern Ireland Homes from Home appeal aims to raise £3.7 million to fund two Homes from Home at locations within walking distance of the hospitals in Northern Ireland where young people with cancer are treated.
Planning permission has been granted to build the first CLIC Sargent Home from Home in Northern Ireland located within walking distance of the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children. CLIC Sargent has also bought the site for a second Home from Home, located close to the Belfast City Hospital.
