THE Pan-Disability Lisburn Badminton Club recently received the welcome news the Northern Bank's Employee Charity Group had adjudged the Club to be a worthy recipient of a financial donation to help purchase a sports-specific wheelchair for the tournament-standard players at the Lisburn Club. Katherine Morrow, Northern Bank

Senior Branch Manager (Lisburn), attended the Pan-Disability Lisburn Badminton Club recently to present a cheque to the value of 1,554 to wheelchair player Michael Smith. This unbelievable gesture by the employees of the Northern Bank means the Club has completed its quest to obtain this essential equipment for its two wheelchair players so they can compete at tournaments in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Europe and hopefully at the World Championships in Korea in 2009 The purchase of a second badminton wheelchair was made possible by the receipt of donations from other businesses in addition to fundraising events held by the club itself.
