The money was raised through Geordie and Russell's sixtieth birthday party where guests donated money to Diabetes UK instead of buying presents. Ernest Beck is missing from the picture. US2908-102A0

THREE cousins who each celebrate their birthday in June, decided to hold a joint party and raise money for charity.

Broomhedge men, Ernest Beck, Russell Beck and Geordie Wilkinson invited friends and family to the Maze community

Hall for their birthday party and raised a total of 875.60 for Diabetes Research NI.

The men would like to thank everyone who came along and showed support as well as all the businesses who sponsored the event.
