Charity Concert

Blue Banner Total Abstinence LOL 781 have organised a Charity Concert to help raise funds for the Sir Samuel Kelly Project and Christian Aid’s Nepal Earthquake Appeal. LOL 781 approached local acts to perform at the concert and Flutes & Drums Donaghadee, Donaghadee Community Irish Dancers, Donaghadee Drumming Club and the Orangemen’s Choir all agreed to provide the entertainment for the night while Donaghadee Parish Church kindly gave the use of the Parish Hall for the evening. The organisers would like to thank them all for their contributions. The event is to be held on Tuesday 23rd June at 7.00pm in Donaghadee Parish Church Hall, admission is £5.00 payable at the door and includes a light supper. There will be someone present from the Sir Samuel Kelly Project to give a short talk outlining the aims of the project which was launched in 2014 after a series of public meetings. A steering group decided to form a limited company with which to seek funding, to restore Ireland’s most famous lifeboat and build a maritime museum to house it in Donaghadee.

It is important that the Sir Samuel Kelly is preserved as it is a very important part of Donaghadee’s maritime history and culture and should have a permanent home where future generations can continue to appreciate it.
On the 25th April and again on the 12th May this year, parts of Nepal were devastated by two huge earthquakes which claimed over 8,000 lives and forced some 3 million people from their homes. Half the money raised will go to Christian Aid’s Nepal Earthquake Appeal Fund and will help some of those affected to rebuild their lives.

LOL 781 appeal to everyone to please support them in their efforts to raise much needed funds for these two very worthy and deserving causes.
