Ballymena Rotarians this year made up over 250 Christmas Hampers and distributed them to the lonely and less fortunate families throughout the Ballymena Area.

There were a number of generous sponsors but special mention must be made of Ashgrove Contact Furniture.

Rotarians used the help of 21 very loyal schools. The nonperishable food items are collected from them then made into hampers. Rotarians also purchase additional semi-luxury ingredients so that each hamper has a good balance. Hampers are donated to several local charities, including Women’s Aid, Salvation Army, St Vincent De Paul, most are distributed locally by individual members, visiting and chatting with each family. Ballymena Rotary Club would like to thank all others who made the whole operation possible.
