First Larne Carpark proceeds given to NHS trust

Apr 17, 2020 | Archive

PROCEEDS raised from matchday parking at First Larne Presbyterian has been donated to help in the fight against Covid-19.

Throughout the season, the car park of First Larne opens its gates to dozen of cars and helps to ease congestion around Inver Park.

Many Larne fans regularly take up this service, donating to charity and church organisations on their way into the car park.

The organisers of this scheme have decided to pass on £1,000 to the local NHS trust, in their efforts to support frontline staff at this time.

Stephen Ross, speaking on behalf of the First Larne Carpark group said: “We have decided that the need of others is much greater at this time than our own need, so have decided as a group to pass the money onto the NHS.

“We have been in touch with the local trust and this money is being added to an account to support NHS workers with care packages, food, accommodation etc.

“Earlier this week, we posted a cheque for £1000.

“As a group we thought it was important the club, and more importantly the fans who supported the carpark this season are aware of what the money is being used for.”

A fantastic amount going to a fantastic cause.
