Belfast City Airport fund boost for community projects
Over £36,000 has been donated to local projects by George Best Belfast City Airport’s Community Fund.
The airport has funded 11 projects, including a pantomime trip for Adoption UK (NI), new tracksuits for Castlereagh Young Footballers and new equipment for disabled children to enjoy safe horseriding.
Since the fund was set up last year, it has supported children with autism at Helping Hands Community Group in Tullycarnet, young people with Down’s Syndrome at Cregagh Diamontes Dance Group and two schools, St Joseph’s and Victoria Park.
Support has also been provided to the writers of the George Best musical Dancing Shoes and the airport has donated £5,000 to Priory College’s fundraising efforts for Haiti.
The airport is now inviting local residents and community groups to come along to two Community Information Days on August 26 and 27 to find out how they can apply for support from the Community Fund.
