The two nominated Charities this year were the N.I. Branch of The British Heart Foundation and the North Coast Branch of Autism N.I. Preliminary indications are that a sum, in the region of £ 2,800.00 was lifted on the day. There are usually other donations received by the Committee, from people unable to attend, which will also be added to the aforementioned figure, before the final, official total is announced. One interesting Ballot prize on the day, was a voucher for a new tie won by Rt Wor Bro Jack O’ Dunlop.
