Mainstay DRP street collection

SIR, — Mainstay DRP, a local charity for people with a learning disability and autism based in Downpatrick, would like to thank everyone who supported our recent street collections.

The collection in Downpatrick on March 31 raised £937.75, while the collection in Crossgar on June 30 raised £543.

The collection in Castlewellan on August 4 raised £710.86 but, unfortunately, due to adverse weather conditions, we were unable to carry out our planned collection in in Ballynahinch on August 25.

We would like to thank all volunteers and staff who gave up their valuable time to help with the various collections. It is only with the help and support of our local community that we can continue to deliver our vital services.

Yours etc,


Finance and Estates Manager,

Mainstay DRP.
