Braidwater recently invited charities and sporting organisations in the Limavady area to apply for funding in celebration of the commencement of construction at Roe Wood on the Ballyquin Road.
Criona O’Hara, assistant site manager at Roe Wood, presents Limavady Youths coach Martin Mullan with a cheque for £250.
Our first recipient is Limavady Youths, a local cross community grass roots football club.
Martin Mullan, a voluntary coach with the 2013 age group, explained the background and what the funding will help towards:
‘’All the children at the club come from a range of differing cultures, socio-economic backgrounds and of all abilities. We are fortunate enough to have over 300 young boys and girls who are members of the club and we train twice weekly as well as playing matches.
‘’We’re absolutely delighted to receive this donation and it will go towards fundraising efforts to enable our team and family community to travel to compete in England next April against teams from all over Europe.
‘’This tournament will promote the kids’ self-confidence and provide a positive lasting memory after a difficult and restrictive year. The donation will make this a more achievable dream for the children.’’
Darren Farnan, marketing manager of Braidwater, reiterated the company’s standing within the local community:
‘’This donation is part of the Braidwater Group’s yearly charitable programme and in line with our commitment to support the communities we operate in.
‘’Limavady Youths fit the profile of what’s good about cross community initiatives and we’re delighted to be able to support the 2013 age group on their quest to compete on a national stage next April and we wish them all the best.’’
