Rory's generous donation is perfect gift for charity
Even for a multi-millionaire sports star, the donation of £500,000 by Rory McIlroy from his Foundation to help build a new mental health facility in Belfast was an astonishingly generous gift. But as our report today demonstrates, Rory was keen to give his time as well as his money to the organisation.
That is what marks him out as an outstanding human being, not just a golfing superstar. It was evident from his interaction with families at the Mencap centre that he is interested in the care they receive and wants to ensure it is as good as possible.
He deserves every credit for helping those less fortunate in life than himself.
