A magical presentation for a magical and spell-binding young man!
Little Jack Rolston raised £600 along with his family during this year’s charitable efforts by the West Armagh Festival.
The annual fun run and walk – which concluded the week-long activities programme – amassed a fantastic £4,200.
This year’s beneficiaries were Armagh Breast Cancer Support Group and Lisanally Special School.
Representatives from each were present at a cheque presentation ceremony at the Palace.
It was hosted by Deputy Lord Mayor of Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council, Councillor Paul Duffy.
Representatives of the West Armagh Consortium – which organised the event – were there to hand over the proceeds.
And Deputy Lord Mayor Duffy had a well-deserved and worthy presentation of his own to make to Jack, a pupil of Lisanally Special School.
The proud young man received a magic wand for all his endeavours!
Well done to all involved in raising such a fantastic amount for two great causes!
