Recently we were delighted to welcome the Mayor of Lisburn and Castlereagh City, Councillor Uel Mackin to our presentation of cheques to the successful applicants of our Youth Bank’s inaugural Grant Applications. Mayor Mackin said “Fantastic to see young people taking responsibility within their community and managing their grant scheme. During the process young people developed existing skills and learned many new ones which can only be good for this forward thinking group. Thanks to Francie for bringing this initiative forward”

The Grants were awarded to:-

  • Lisburn Junior Temperance LOL (£400) will use the funds to purchase sports equipment to assist with decreasing antisocial behaviour
  • Old Warren PTA (£350) will use the funds to design a school sign for the Primary School
  • Lisburn Rovers FC (£400) will use the funds to run a football tournament to help promote positive mental health.
