Did attend Loreto College in Coleraine?

The Friends of Loreto College is holding a special event next month to raise funds for a very special project.

The Loreto 85th Anniversary Ball will take place on Saturday 14th March in The Tullyglass Hotel, Ballymena. The Ball is a night for everyone. It is not a reunion and it is not limited to past pupils: it is for everyone who has an interest in Loreto College Coleraine. With many former students planning to attend, the Friends of Loreto are also very keen to welcome parents of current pupils as the event’s fundraising will go directly into upgrading a very special and unique asset which has now been passed to the school - the beautiful Loreto Convent and Chapel building itself.

The Friends of Loreto intend to use the funds raised at the Loreto 85th Anniversary Ball to fund the refurbishment of the old convent into a Pastoral Care and Learning Support Centre, and, depending on the funds raised, perhaps also a Sixth Form Common Room.

To book tickets, contact Pauline Dougan at Loreto College, either on 028 70343611 or by post c/o The Friends of Loreto, Castlerock Road, Coleraine BT51 3JZ.

Tickets cost £50 each with tables each seating ten; those wishing to secure a table can do so for £500. The dress code is black tie and there will be raffles, entertainment and a special auction on the night.
