Bloomin’ marvellous effort as over £7k raised at Sunflower Field Portglenone

Damian and Karen McAllister

As summer gives way to autumn, it has been another amazing effort this year, with the community flocking to the spectacular Sunflower Field in Portglenone from all over Northern Ireland.

Despite the challenging impacts of COVID-19 and unsettled weather, Damian and Karen McAllister were delighted to be able to donate the proceeds of their much-anticipated yearly charity event to Versus Arthritis.

The charity expressed their heartfelt thanks to the wonderful couple from County Antrim who raised a whopping £7,348.63!

The event also was successful in raising awareness with the many visitors to the field this summer, of the debilitating condition that effects so many lives in our community.

Damian himself was diagnosed a few weeks ago with Rheumatoid Arthritis and therefore the family decided to support a cause close to them and so many others.

The donated money will help the Versus Arthritis charity to continue providing support and services to people in Northern Ireland living with the pain, fatigue and isolation of arthritis.

A massive well done!
