Mayor of Lisburn City Council, James Tinsley with members of Hope of Life, Helen Coulter (secretary), Ida McCready (treasurer) Ronnie Coulter (chairman) George Megarry (treasurer) Miriam Ward (committee member) and Evie McCartan, preparing for the forthcoming Ladies Tractor Road Run and BBQ.

ANY ladies who can drive a tractor are urged to sign up to a charity fundraiser in memory of a local lady who passed away last year following a courageous battle against ovarian cancer.

Friends and family of the late Mrs Helen Megarry, a wife and mother from Hillsborough, are organising a Ladies Tractor Road Run, on Friday June 13. The ladies will drive round the beautiful countryside of Hillsborough and Dromore and then back for a BBQ and Social, where everyone is welcome. Helen Coulter, a friend of the late Mrs Megarry encourages any female with access to tractor to join the fun. She said: "We decided to organise some kind of fundraiser event and the money will go to 'Angels of Hope', ( a charity based in Northern Ireland, whose aims are to raise awareness of ovarian cancer and improve knowledge amongst the general public and the medical profession, fund vital research, and to link sufferers, survivors and families. "We are delighted to be able to do something for such a worthy cause and Helen's family are pleased we are doing this. I am proud to be doing this in memory of Helen.

"It should be a good night and already we have sponsors for desserts, which is a great help."

For further information, entry forms and tickets for the BBQ and Social please contact Helen Coulter on 9269 9295 or 07900053805 or Miriam Ward on 9268 2128.
