Power NI, Northern Ireland’s leading energy supplier has donated a £250 grant to Borderline Players who are based in Pettigo, Donegal, as part of their staff sponsorship scheme ‘Helping Hands’.  The drama group performs pantomimes and comedies in Northern Ireland, as well as the Republic of Ireland.

Helena Gleed from Power NI nominated the drama group to receive the money as her daughter performs with the group, which helped them cover the cost of costumes for their next production, Goody Two Shoes.

Helena commented: "My daughter, Phoebe, joined the Borderline Players this year. The drama group has provided a truly wonderful creative experience for her.  I am so grateful to Power NI for financially supporting their current production – Goody Two Shoes through their staff sponsorship scheme. The scheme is a great boost for staff because we can give something back to our local communities.

Siobhan O’Brien, Borderline Players Chairperson, and director of Goody Two Shoes welcomed the Power NI sponsorship saying: "Borderline Players are delighted to receive this support from Power NI which has helped us fund our marvellous costumes for Goody Two Shoes. We are very thankful for Helena for nominating us and we are very excited to perform Goody Two Shoes from the 22nd April to the 7th May 2017."
