Windyhall Community Centre was buzzing last month when a local Coleraine community group raised funds for the Air Ambulance, thanks to the Housing Executive.

The Windyhall 50+ Club held a charity dance to celebrate the fact their weekly meetings are in full swing now that the summer is over.  Active for many years, the Club meets every Wednesday during September to June and enjoys many activities such as tea dances, bowling, board games and colouring books to name a few.

The Housing Executive facilitated the event, and the Air Ambulance was the chosen charity.  A total of £1,049 was raised, and the Club presented a cheque to Air Ambulance shortly afterwards.

Club Secretary, Rosemary McCaw is an active member of the group.  She said:

“Thanks to the Housing Executive for funding our charity dance night, we are delighted with the money raised for Air Ambulance.

“Windyhall 50+ Club is a local community group in the Coleraine area. Everyone in the area is very welcome, and we encourage people to come and enjoy themselves without any obligation.”

Gareth Doran, the Housing Executive’s Good Relations Officer, said:

“I really enjoyed working with the Windyhall 50+ Club, they are active and enthusiastic with a good community ethos.

“We look forward to engaging with them again.”
