Ballynahinch aids Cancer Research

SIR, — On behalf of the Ballynahinch committee of Cancer Research UK I would like to express our sincere thanks to the people of the town and surrounding district for their continued support.

Over the past nine months, a total of £4,386.81 was raised via a number of events, including a house to house collection (£2,027.31), collection boxes placed in local businesses (£1,292.50), a coffee morning at the Market House in Ballynahinch (£815) and a diary ballot (£252).

These amounts have been forwarded to headquarters and will be put to some good use in the ongoing research at Belfast City Hospital.

The winner of the recent diary ballot was Mr. W. Hamilton.

Yours etc.,
