A Randalstown couple are to host an ‘End of Summer’ barbecue and barn dance in aid of the Friends of the Cancer Centre.

Colin and Lynda Millar are opening the doors to their family farm on Saturday, September 12 at 8pm, for the biennial event.

The popular fundraiser attracts hundreds of attendees, with over £18,000 raised for the charity in 2013.

Sponsored by local wind energy company, Simple Power, the company is helping the Millars “power up” for the fun-filled event which is set to be a great evening with charity giveaways, tasty food and music provided by local bands.

Colin and Lynda and their family this week joined Donna Taylor and Adele Woods from Friends of the Cancer Centre Antrim Fundraising Group and Simple Power’s chief executive, Philip Rainey, to help launch the event.

The Millar’s family farm is home to one of the local wind energy company’s single wind turbines that generates clean energy for homes across Northern Ireland.

Simple Power works in partnership with landowners and farmers like the Millar family across Northern Ireland and plans to develop a number of 250kW wind turbines throughout the province.

Philip said: “We’re delighted and very proud to be supporting one of our farming partners as they host what promises to be a great event for an extremely worthy cause.”

Tickets for the event are expected to sell out quickly and are priced at £15, which includes a sumptuous steak, tasty salads and breads as well as music provided by Madasafish and Whyte Knights.

There will also be an auction with prizes including signed rugby and football shirts as giveaways.
