AFTER the success of last year’s event, Rathfriland YFC is excited to announce the return of its annual Treasure Hunt and Barbecue on Thursday, June 27.
The event will take place from the club hall, 18 Downpatrick Street, Rathfriland, from 7pm. The Treasure Hunt was designed by Mark Elliot. The price will be £12 steak and £7 burger for the barbeque on return (includes treasure hunt).
The treasure hunt and barbecue is suitable for all ages and everyone will be made very welcome.
This year Rathfriland YFC turns 75 and club members voted for the Southern Area Hospice to be their charity partner for their milestone year. The SAHS provides invaluable support and care to people who are suffering from cancer, Multiple Sclerosis, Motor Neurone Disease and AIDS. It relies heavily on voluntary donations in order to provide the best quality of life for patients and their families.
It is estimated that one in two people will need or know someone who needs the hospice services in their lifetime and the fundraising department has to raise £7,123 per day to continue to provide these services.
A proportion of proceeds raised from this treasure hunt and barbecue will be donated to the Southern Area Hospice at the close of the 75th year. The overall total will include a proportion of proceeds from the club’s 75th Anniversary Dinner, which is due to be held on October 19 in the Belmont Hotel, Banbridge.
