MEMBERS of a new car club established in Ballymoney are raising their public profile by holding a charity night.
Though the event will not take place until mid-April, the Causeway Cruisers have started early.
Heather told the Times: “I have kids of my own and I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to be told that one of them had cancer. Every minute of every day is precious with your children and to be told that they had such an illness would be devastating.
“Clis Sargent does a wonderful job supporting the families that are dealing with this horrible illness. I hope this charity night can make a difference to the children and young people Clic Sargent work with.”
The fund-raising night will take place on Friday, April 15 at the Royal British Legion clubrooms and Coleraine man, Andy Rodgers, more commonly known as ‘The King’ will be doing an Elvis tribute show and disco.
A finger buffet will be supplied and admission for adults is below £10. There are separate prices for old age pensioners and children (13-16) who must be accompanied by an adult.
Tickets are available at Ballymoney RBL, Eurobikes, Union Street, Coleraine and Bo’s Wash and Go, John Street, Ballymoney.
Heahter told the Times: “We are very anxious to make this a good night and we hope the public will respond favourably. It will be a family night and we want to get that across to the public.”
The aim of the Cruisers is to help educate young people on the dangers on the road. They do this with help from the PSNI and N.I. Fire and Rescue Road Education officers.
The club also deals with the issues and safety implications of modifying cars wrongly or dangerously. Arrangements are also made for young drivers to take part in challenges organised by road safety groups.
The Cruisers depend mainly on fund-raising to keep them going and are grateful to local businesses for their contributions.
