Valentines Ball in Aid of Downpatrick House in Romania
THE Downpatrick Romania Orphanage Committee has organised a Valentine’s Ball which will take place on 16 February at The Mill Ballydugan.
Noreen Baker, organising committee member said: “All proceeds raised will be donated directly to the Downpatrick House Orphanage in Romania which provides a loving home and schooling to 31 children. Those attending the ball will be welcomed with a pink champagne reception followed by dinner and dancing.
“The Downpatrick House Organising Committee are very grateful for the on-going support they have had over the past five years from the local community and from other local organisations such as Downpatrick Lions, The Downpatrick Fold, The Fire Service, The Third World Group and from ASDA. This support has enabled The Downpatrick House to continue to provide housing and education opportunities for the children aged from young babies to teenage .
“In addition to supporting the annual running expenses for the orphanage, funding to date has facilitated the provision of an after-schools club for those children living in the locality who have no opportunity or access to schooling.
:Those attending the Valentines Ball will have the opportunity to find out more about the work of the committee on the evening.”
