A DUNMURRY girl took part in the Belfast City
Marathon Fun Run with three friends to raise money for
Speechmatters — part of The Stroke Association.
Andrea Ferris and her friends Laura Elliman,
Kylie Willis and Colleen McCrink raised £896.50, which will go
towards helping stroke survivors and people living with aphasia
in Northern Ireland.
Dermot Ferris, Andrea's father, is one of
many stroke survivors living in Northern Ireland who has aphasia
and benefits from the services provided by Speechmatters, a
community-based charity which provides professionally led
services to stroke survivors and people living with aphasia,
their carers and families.
If you are interested in participating in any
Speechmatters fundraising event please contact Janice
