Community fundraising campaign launched for house fire victim

Kind-hearted friends have set up a Go Fund Me page for well-known and much loved Portstewart man Mark Roughan after his home in the Prospect Park area of the seaside town was left destroyed after a fire in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Thankfully Mark and his beloved dog Clipper escaped serious injury but sadly he also lost most of his belongings due to fire and water damage.

His friends at Portstewart Men’s Shed have offered the opportunity for the community of Portstewart to show their love and support for Mark by contributing to a fundraiser to help him to get back on his feet.

The fundraising campaign has been organised with the support of Portstewart Parish, SVP and Portstewart Community Association and the money raised will help Mark move into other accommodation and replace essential items.

Already the page has raised over £7,000, a sign of the high esteem Mark is held in by the Portstewart community.
