Cary and Dunluce annual charity breakfast will take place on Saturday the 7th November 2015 in the Coleraine Campus of The University of Ulster. Meals will be served from 7.00 AM to 10.00AM that morning. Our chairman this year Wor Bro Bertie Rice ( Lodge 17 Vowferry ) and his team are hoping for a good turn-out of Brethren, family and friends from the Cary and Dunluce district of County Antrim and also from the town of Coleraine and the surrounding district of North Derry. We are delighted to be using the excellent facilities of The University of Ulster based on the Cromore Road site in Coleraine. There will be plenty of signage and stewards available to take you to the correct part of the University complex.
This year our two selected charities will be Cystic Fibrosis N.I. ( North Coast Branch ) and the Friends of The Cancer Centre. We shall have representitives from both Charities available on the day, and they will try to inform us on the works that their charities do. In
the case of Cystic Fibrosis, we will learn that this is a life shortening genetic condition that slowly destroys the lungs and digestive system. We will also learn that you cannot catch Cystic Fibrosis, or develope it in later life.. The only way to have CF is to inherit a copy of the faulty gene from each of their parents. The faulty gene is carried by one in twenty five people in the population, and if two carriers have a baby, there is a one in four chance that it will be infected.
On reading the attached details on Cystic Fibrosis, you will be able to understand why we have selected this particular charity for support, along with The Friends of The Cancer Center. We hope that as many of you as possible with your friends and families will give up a couple of hours on Saturday morning to join with us all in a £ 10.00 Ulster Fry, and in this way give strong support to the Cary and Dunluce Charity Committee, as they raise funds to help both of these worthy causes.So Brethren we look forward to greeting as many of you as possible, as we help support the ongoing work of Cystic Fibrosis N.I. and The Friends of The Cancer Centre. And if you are unable to be there in person, then you may want to speak to your Lodge Charity Steward and give him your donation directly.
