Following a recent highly successful collection at Mourne Fresh Foods in Newcastle, Shimna Stars Special Olympics Club athletes, family members and club volunteers presented a Certificate of Appreciation to Store Supervisor Eimhear McGee to acknowledge the value of the contribution donated by customers and the local community.
The donation £557.67 greatly boosts club funds as the athletes and volunteers prepare for the Ireland Special Olympic Games in June.
Club training continues each Tuesday evening from 6.30pm In Shimna Integrated College Sports Hall.
