GLENGORMLEY Fire Cadets raised hundreds of pounds for the Gis A Hug Foundation on Saturday, April 9.

Neil, and his friend Aaron Davidson, died from carbon monoxide poisoning in a tragic incident at a holiday apartment in Castlerock last summer. The 18-year-old life-long friends from Whiteabbey were both pupils at Glengormley High School.
