Mad Hatters' Fundraiser


Charities benefit from Mad Hatters Party Night

A large crowd gathered recently for the Mad Hatters party night in Rices Hotel, Poyntzpass to raise money for two worthy charities. Those attending donned their best hats and participated in a great night’s entertainment which included a quiz and raffle followed by music and song from the hugely talented Marty Gorman.  This event was organised as an alternative birthday celebration and was sponsored by Rices Hotel.

PIPS (Public Initiative for Prevention of Suicide and Self-harm) Newry and Mourne received £300.00 towards offering the community a targeted response to suicide and self-harm and is the leading suicide prevention charity in the area.

NABD (National Association of Bikers with a Disability) received £265.00 towards helping bikers with a disability get back on the road. In the past 20 years about 10,000 people have been supported to enjoy the freedom and independence of motorcycling.  NABD was also presented with some biker gear for raffle/auction at a future biker event, prizes were kindly donated by Crossan Motorcycles and Gerald (Dodi) Hudson.
