With some returns still to come in it is likely that the amount raised for Addiction NI (Glenavon’s nominated charity for 2017/18) by the ‘sponsor a balloon’ initiative earlier this month will be in excess of £3,000. A final figure will be confirmed in due course.

Meantime prizewinners in the draw for those who sponsored a balloon – held in the Bedeck Suite following the Loughgall game – were:

  • ZARA MILLAR: £100 voucher for Harlem restaurant Belfast
  • GARETH ROULTON: £60 Carpet Cleaning voucher
  • GARY MILLAR: £50 beauty salon voucher
  • GERRY MULGREW: £50 voucher for Bluezone Club Shop
  • PAUL THORNBURY: £50 flowers from The Flower Room Holywood

Finally the total raised by the “Big Breakfast” fundraiser held in the Bedeck Suite on Saturday 10 March in aid of Addiction NI was £500.
