Power NI, Northern Ireland’s leading energy supplier, has donated £250 to The Mary Peters Trust, as part of its staff sponsorship scheme, ‘Helping Hands’.
The charity that helps support aspiring young athletes across Northern Ireland was nominated for the funding by Power NI employee, Deborah Teague. The scheme run by Power NI encourages employees to nominate local organisations and community groups which they are involved with.
The Mary Peters trust continued its ‘Race to a Million’ with the recent sports inspired concert ‘Go the Distance Bronze’ on Saturday 10th March in Belfast’s Ulster Hall. The £250 funding donated by Power NI was put towards the running costs of the event.
Executive Manager at the Mary Peter’s Trust, Gillian Hetherington (left) remarked, “Donations such as this are invaluable to our charity. This lowers our costs and ensures funds raised go directly to talented young sportsmen and women".
