Larne Football Club (NI) Charity was delighted to welcome the local Carrickfergus and Larne Branch of the National Autistic Society to Inver Park on Saturday 21st September, prior to the match against Dungannon Swifts.
Trustees of the LFC Charity presented a representative of the Society with a match ball signed by our first team.
The charity, set up by Larne Football Club to aid us in our local community initiatives, provided the NAS with the signed ball to use in their own fundraising activities, perhaps in a ballot or charity auction.
Speaking on behalf of NAS, Chairperson Kelly Taylor said: “We are delighted to receive this valuable support for our fundraising from Larne Football Club’s charity. As a local charity ourselves we will use the funds raised to provide support services for families of autistic children in care.”
Roy Logan, Charity Secretary also commented: “As Trustees of the Larne FC NI Charity we are delighted to support this recently established branch of the National Autistic Society with a match ball signed by the First Team squad. The NAS branch will be able to utilise it to raise funds to assist with their work helping children with autism.
As Trustees we hope to support many more local young people and adults with their education, their sporting aspirations or even their startup business or other ideas that will benefit our community.”
Everyone at the club and our charity would like to wish NAS Carrickfergus and Larne all the best with their future fundraising events, and congratulate them on the fantastic work they are doing in the local community to date.
