The fantastic team of care assistants in the Newtownabbey area knew they wanted their iCare Wish to make a real difference in their local community.
With some insider information and connections from Area Manager Margaret Mc Kinley, they somehow managed to get their hands on a boxing glove, owned and signed by none other than Carl “the Jackal” Frampton, two-weight world champion boxer.
Following a competitive auction, the team were able to use the funds raised co-purchase a defibrillator for use in the local community.
Area Manager Margaret McKinley said “We’re thrilled to have been able to co-fund a local community defibrillator. Our team are made of locals and to give something back to our own community that could potentially save lives and creates a sense of reassurance and comfort for residents is so rewarding".
Well done to Margaret’s team, fantastic effort….we’re looking forward to the next fundraiser from Carrick/Larne/Newtownabbey already…stay tuned for Christmas Craft ideas and an upcoming abseil!!
