Amy Morrison and Julie-Ann McVicker were over the moon with the success of their recent Ladies Pamper night which they held at Toberkeigh Hall to raise funds for a forth-coming Smiles Foundation trip to Romania.
The 24-year olds who both work at the County Medical Centre Armoy, raised a fantatsic £1419.14 from the evening which had everything from Eyebrow Waxing, Nail Painting, Reflexology, Massage, Cake Sales, Craft Stalls and much more.
“We were totally overwhelmed by the support we received from everyone,” commented Amy. “We would like to thank everyone who came along, we were delighted with the backing we received.”
Amy and Julie-Ann are members of a party from the Route Presbytery who will travel to Romania on 10th July for eight days.
“There are 12 of us in the team and we will be delivering various bits and pieces to families when we arrive there as well as visiting homeless families.
“There is a container of items which has been collected ranging from clothes to cleaning products which are very expensive being sent out and this will all be distributed.
“This is our first trip to Romania and we are really looking forward to going, however, it’s a mixture of excitement and a little trepidation about what to expect.
“I’m sure it will be a very emotional experience but up to now we have been so busy getting things organised we haven’t had much time to think about it.”
