Mayor makes the Link
Mayor of Ards Councillor David Smyth has announced his designated charity for his term in office will be The Link Family and Community Centre in Newtownards.
Based in West Street in the town, The Link delivers a range of services and projects, including addiction support and a drop-in centre for marginalised young people, a parent and toddler group and senior citizen club, as well as a social economy business which raises funds and provides vulnerable clients with employment and skill-building opportunities.
“I was very keen to choose a local charity which has a very definite local impact and The Link most definitely meets those criteria,” said Mr Smyth. “It is now a well-established organisation in Ards, with a deserved reputation for doing work which makes a real difference to real people, many of whom find themselves in difficult circumstances.”
Donations can be made via Ards Borough Council.
