10 volunteers from the Boys' Brigade in Northern Ireland who in
partnership with Habitat for Humanity Northern Ireland will help
to rebuild homes and lives in the communities of South India
where 187,650 people have been affected by the Boxing Day
The 1st Magheragall Boys' Brigade Officer,
who is a farmer, is no stranger to hard physical work and is
looking forward to the challenge. He said: "The environment and
conditions will be very different from what I am used to - I'm
sure it will be tough but rewarding work.
"To help a family to rebuild their home is a
wonderful opportunity and I'm really up for the challenge."
Christopher is trying to raise funds for the
project through various events. One such event is a `Ladies
Night' in Ballinderry Presbyterian Church on Wednesday March 28
Professional make-up artist Niamh Martin, who
has worked in television and magazines, will demonstrate her
talents. There will be an opportunity to purchase products, win
spot prizes and enjoy supper with the other guests.
Tickets are £5.00 and can be purchased at the
door. For further details contact Mrs Joanne Moore from the
Beauty Clinic on 9264 8832.
