FOLLOWING the launch of Larne Football Club’s new community initiative last week, we are delighted to announce that a further eight community groups have received donations valued at £500 each.
During the past week, first team players haven taken part in community visits to handover the remaining donations, while others from both our men’s and ladies’ sides have volunteered their time to aid the delivery of hot meals to those in need.
The latest series of visits saw our first team players reach many areas of the Larne Borough, including:
- Larne Food Bank
- Seacourt Residents Group (via the Larne Community Development Project)
- Harbour Residents Group
- Millbrook Community Association
- Glynn Residents Group
- Ballygally Community Development Association
- Carnlough Community Association
- Glenarm Residents Group
Speaking on the importance of reaching their entire community, our chairman Gareth Clements said: “Once again, it has been really rewarding to see another great weeks work done in the community.
“From players handing over cheques, to them volunteering their time along with the ladies team delivering meals, our outreach has been far and wide.
“The world famous Antrim Coast Road, as we know is known as the ‘Gateway to the Glens’. The road runs two ways and it has been great to be able to reach out in some small way, to support those more rural communities, who shop and support our town centre on a weekly basis.
“We are in this pandemic together, and only together will we come out of it stronger.”
