The Southern Health and Social Care Trust today thanked the local community for their generous donations over the past 18 months. 

Over half a million pounds of voluntary donations and gifts was spent on equipment and services that will directly benefit patients and clients.  

Non-Executive Director Siobhan Rooney, Chair of the Trust’s Endowments and Gifts Committee said: “I would like to thank our local community for the donations and gifts they have generously made to services across the Trust. 

“Patients and clients have benefitted greatly as we can buy things that we would otherwise be unable to purchase such as; emergency clothing, additional hoists and high back chairs for wards and patient areas, as well as workshops, games, providing reflexology for patients and many more items. 

“Every donation large or small to our facilities and services is greatly appreciated. Endowments and Gifts funds are used on items to ensure patient comfort and extra equipment to enhance safe and quality care. 

“There are also numerous donations in memory of family members which have gone directly to facilities including day centres for adults with learning disabilities; services for older people and children and young people’s services.”

Well Done
Well done to the Mackin sisters, Aimee and Blaithin, who were part of the Armagh senior ladies team which defeated Cork in the National League on Sunday afternoon. Well done also the Greg McCabe who was part of the Armagh senior men’s team which drew with Sligo in the National League on Sunday afternoon.
Cairde Sheáin Uí Néill
The club is actively encouraging more people to sign up to the Cairde Sheáin Uí Néill scheme at a cost £10.00 per month. This money goes directly towards club development schemes and over the past number of years has helped to upgrade the playing surface on the main field, construct a new training pitch, partly contribute to the new concrete driveway and will hopefully help to begin construction on the new walkway around the field.
At £10.00 per month we feel it is a very easy, worthwhile and beneficial scheme to sign up to. For further information, please contact Brendy Osborne (07543 806274) or pm the Shane O'Neill's Facebook page.
Last week’s winning lotto numbers were 4, 9, 16 & 22. There were no jackpot winners and 4 x match three winners. The jackpot now stands at £5,000.
The club would like to offer its sympathy to the family of Brenda Darcy from Bessbrook who has passed away. Mrs Darcy was grandmother to our former senior players Ronan and Gavin McAnulty and several other underage players.
