We were delighted to receive £1,000 from Thales towards the work of our Bangor Family Support Service. The Service was nominated for the generous donation by a neighbour of a family supported by the Service.
Speaking at the cheque presentation, Service Manager Tim Parr said: “We cannot thank the Thales Group, and in particular their Charity Committee enough, for this donation. Thales have supported our work for a number of years and we are extremely grateful. This money will go directly towards supporting young people with a learning disability and their families in the Bangor and North Down area.”
The Service intends to spend the money to provide extra opportunities during holiday schemes for the children and young people supported as well as developing a programme around supporting their sibs.
