Newtownabbey Mayor Alderman Victor Robinson has hosted a ballot draw in the Mayor’s Parlour in support of the Macmillan Nurses Cancer Support, writes Joe Cohen.

The event was organised by a group of independent driving instructors from the Associated Schools of Motoring NI Ltd who came together in 2009 to form a co-operative.

Company director Ken Adams explained: “Each year the co-op selects a worthy charity to support. Last year it was Red Nose Day, this year Macmillan Nurses Cancer Support, by offering their clients and their families and the general public, the opportunity to win £250 worth of driving lessons so that all public donations will go to this very worthy charity”.

The lucky winner drawn by the Mayor was Kim Skelton of Barna Square, Newtownabbey.

“I would like to thank everyone who participated in the ballot for their generous donations, a big thank you to the Mayor Victor Robinson and to our associated members and other driving school owners who willingly helped with ballot sales”, said Mr Adams.
