Members and friends of 'Brookmount Dance Ranch' Line Dance Club presenting their annual charity funds to 'Seymour Hill Horticultural Unit' and 'Lisburn Senior Gateway Club'.

MEMBERS and friends of Brookmount Dance Ranch have presented £2,000 to two local charities following their latest line dance evening.

The group has been raising money all year through their club social nights and sponsorship for doing the •Lisburn Fun Run and were delighted to have raised £2,000 to give to this year's chosen charities, which both do remarkable work with people with learning disabilities.

At their latest Line Dance, on Friday April 20, they handed over £1,000 to Lisburn Senior Gateway Club representative, Stephen Lenaghan. This money will be used towards a fantastic day out in June for roughly 75 members and 15 volunteers.

Paddy Coleman and Charlie Maxwell, 'who attend Seymour Hill Horticultural Unit, accepted a cheque which represented £1,000 worth of much needed resources. These included picnic tables, giant garden games, exercise mats, a CD player and even a cement mixer to make mixing compost easier for the clients.

The Dance Ranch thanked Kathie McCall and members of the SHHU Advocacy Group for the great suggestions.

There was also a huge thank you to all who supported Brookmount Dance Ranch in their fund raising efforts throughout the year. They have beginner and intermediate classes every Monday night. Anyone interested can contact class teacher Sharon Hendron on 07761090185.
