The members of East Antrim Old Vehicle Club (EAOVC) held their annual dinner dance at Barnaby’s Restaurant in Ballyrobert recently.
During the event, office bearers were delighted to hand over a cheque for £5,000 to TinyLife - Northern Ireland’s premature baby charity.
The funds were raised during the club’s 11th annual Belfast-Portrush Cavalcade, which took place last August. The cavalcade assembled at Mossley Mill before heading for Portrush, were they held a static display at the Dunluce Centre.
Accepting the cheque, Gillian Breen, Community Fundraiser for TinyLife said: “We are delighted to receive this cheque from the East Antrim Old Vehicle Club. Every day in Northern Ireland seven babies are born too soon. Some will arrive as early as 24 weeks and weigh as little as 1lb. TinyLife provides emotional and practical support to the families of premature babies across Northern Ireland and it’s thanks to the support we receive from local people that we can continue to provide these services.”
Anyone interested in supporting TinyLife should contact the Gillian on 9081 5050 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
