Take me out Night

Super Fun Nite for Buddy Bear Trust

A great night's craic was had by all in the Terrace Hotel ,Magherafelt for children with cerebral palsy at the Buddy Bear Trust School in Dungannon.

Senior students from the North Regional College and and friends organised a fantastic "Take Me Out "night to raise funds and publicity for the only Conductive Education School in Ireland. It is a charity based school that relies on donations to educate children with cerebral palsy. It has helped improve the lives of children for 20 years.

The lucky young men who took part had a wonderful line up of beautiful young ladies to choose from in the Terrace Hotel.

The ICT  students made very professional videos of their plucky colleagues and  friends to try to attract the interest of the lovely ladies.

Dale the DJ brought it all to life as he introduced the young men and tried to encourage them to "strut their stuff" to the laughter of the audience.

Chloe and Katie two little Princesses from the Buddy Bear Trust School were there with their parents, family and friend as well as Ms Ildiko Veres, the Principal and Brendan McConville, Chairman who introduced the event and showed the audience a short video about the work and the achievements of the school which has been providing help and hope for the last 20 years without any state funding even though the Assembly agreed 6 years ago that the school should be funded and supported.

"Our children will benefit from Conductive Education. We have visible  proof on the video.  We need support from the community and business to help the children and to give real hope to parents"  Brendan McConville  We need volunteers to support our work.

Parents of children with cerebral palsy who wish information or anyone interested in helping should contact the school on 02887752025 or 07867786804.
