Focus on Family have begun their Quest

Thursday, May 09, 2013

Focus on Family in Ballysally have become the first group of the six groups to complete step the first energy saving step of Quest. They are now well on their way to winning the £10,000 prize to invest in renewable technology for their community.

The first stage of their ten step energy saving programme was a community meeting were their group mentor Neil Coleman provided a presentation on the background to Power NI, the benefits of energy saving and more details on what to expect throughout the rest of the Quest competition.   They are now currently working on step number two which is completing 100 online Home Energy Checks.

Focus on Family project manager Brendan Patterson said: "It is great to finally get the ball rolling on Quest. The presentation was informative and to the point but in a relaxed way that worked well for our group. We are already spreading the word on the Home Energy Checks so hopefully we complete this step quickly too." Group mentor Neil Coleman added: "Quest has gotten off to a very positive start. 

The Focus on Family community meeting was a great success; it was good to see so much participation and to see everyone talking about Quest. 

The group is really enthusiastic and I’m looking forward to see how they get on with the rest of the challenge." The next challenge in the ten steps for Focus on Family is complete 100 Home Energy Checks on the Power NI website.
