Big thank you from

Line dance group kick up a storm to help the NI Hospice

Members of Brookmount Dance Ranch and Belsize Kickers Line Club's present charity representative Irene Maitland with a cheque for £2400 for Northern Ireland Children's Hospice Charity Night.BROOKMOUNT Dance Ranch and Belsize Kickers Line Dance Club's held a 70's night on Friday April 24 in Lowquarter Orange Hall, Magheragall to celebrate their charity fundraising efforts throughout the year.

The groups were thrilled to present Irene Maitland with a cheque for £2,400 for the Northern Ireland Children's Hospice.

They raised the money by doing Line Dance demonstrations, Line Dance social nights throughout the year, and Smarties tube collection. A very special effort was made by club members Charlie Hendron and Ross McNeill who cycled 100 miles around Lough Neagh.

Class teacher Sharon Hendron commented, "I would like to say a huge thank you to Charlie Hendron and Ross McNeill and all who sponsored them.

"Every year the dancers vote aim nominate a charity to fundraise for and over the last four years we have donated a grand total of £7610 to various local charities.

"I feel very lucky to teach so many genuinely kind and generous people. A sincere thank you to each and every one of them and to all of you who supported their efforts."
