The local fire fighters in Ballycastle are holding a car wash on Saturday 25th from 10.30am -3.30pm and funds raised will go to Mother Goose Community Playgroup and Jack Horner Pre-school.
A spokesperson for the group said: “Everyone knows the important and outstanding work the fire fighters do in our communities and this fundraiser could not have come at a better time as recently the Stormont Minister John O Dowd announced that funding was being withdrawn from the Early Years Sector of the Department of Education and this could effectively enforce the closure of the Mother Goose playgroup which has been operational since 1989.
“However we as a community stand united to have this shocking decision rescinded. More details can be found on our facebook page or on the Early Years website.
“So please come along to the carwash at the fire station on Market Street this Saturday between 10.30 and 3.30pm and support the fire fighters who are supporting our community.”
