THE Drumaness Youth Council are delighted at the support they received for their Christmas Community Event.
Young people from Drumaness Youth Council were overwhelmed by the support they received from local people for the roll out of their Christmas Community Event on Saturday 8 December in the Dan Rice Hall, Drumaness. The event was organised in association with Down Policing and Community Safety Partnership.
Spokesperson for the group Martin McAlister said: “Young people in the village have been working very hard over the last number of weeks to organise this event and we were pleased that so many people came out to join in the festive fun. We hope this is the first of many events the young people will run to help promote Drumaness as a fun, safe and happy place to live and work.”
People attending the event enjoyed free burgers and chips, a children’s disco with facepainting, a tombola and a wide range of Christmas stalls. The day concluded with a showing of the Christmas classic, ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ throughout which young people served tea, coffee, biscuits and popcorn.
Santa was a huge success, with a huge number of young people visiting to hear about his plans for Christmas eve and what they hoped to see under their own trees on Christmas morning.
All money raised on the day will be donated to support a number of good causes including Cool FMs Cash for Kids Appeal and the Hands for Alfie Appeal.
