County Antrim Yacht Club are delighted to have received a donation from Power NI via staff member Steffi Lewis.
We appreciate this donation which will be transferred to Whitehead Storehouse with the donations from CAYC Members who took part in a Virtual Quiz on Saturday 25 April.
This joint funding from Power NI Staff Community Response Fund and CAYC will enable the delivery of approx. 25-30 Food packages to support individuals and families in the local community who are vulnerable or shielding. This will also enable the provision of emergency Food packages and toiletries where needed.
Thank you to everyone for their support.
