Power NI, Northern Ireland’s leading energy supplier, has donated £250 to Ballynafeigh School of Irish Dancing, as part of its staff sponsorship scheme, ‘Helping Hands’.
The Irish dancing school was nominated for the funding by Power NI employee Ashleigh O’Neill, who has been dancing at the school from the age of 3. The scheme run by Power NI encourages employees to nominate local organisations and community groups which they are involved with. The funding was used to purchase materials for costumes for their upcoming shows in the Waterfront Studios throughout the month April.
Delighted with the funding, Ashleigh commented, “Donations such as this are invaluable to our dance school. They enable us to buy materials and costumes that otherwise wouldn’t be available to us, and in doing so enable us to include everyone from our tiniest dancers to our seniors in this performance.”
Ballynafeigh school of Irish Dancing is a cross community group of dancers ranging from age 4 to 27. To celebrate the success of the school and promote growth within the local community Ballynafeigh will be running a show in the Waterfront Studio in Belfast on 14th, 15th and 21st of April.
