Jigs'n'reels event boosts cancer research funds

The funds were raised from a ‘Jigs & Reels’ evening in Connolly’s Bar, Dunvale, Ballymena and was done in association with the Geraldine Donnelly School of Dancing.

Several local boys from the area wanted to do something to help raise money for cancer research and undertook the challenge of learning to dance from scratch. Pictures submitted
