NSPCC Northern Ireland has expressed its sincere thanks to members and supporters of the NI Simmental Cattle Breeders’ Club after their annual barbecue raised a staggering £6,250 for the children’s charity.

Jennifer Hobson, chair of the NSPCC’s Dungannon fundraising committee said they were delighted to be chosen by the Simmental Cattle Breeders’ Club as the charity to benefit from their annual barbecue.

“The £6,250 raised was an amazing sum of money, which will help the work of NSPCC. We would like to extend a big thank you to all involved for their hard work,” she added.

Clare Galbraith, NSPCC community fundraising manager, said that their efforts would prove significant for vulnerable local children.

“We were absolutely delighted when the NI Simmental Cattle Breeders’ Club selected us as their chosen charity for this event, and the outcome exceeded our hopes.

“The generosity of those who attended, and of course those who donated prizes, was overwhelming,” she said.

She said this year, the charity will spend almost £4.9 million in Northern Ireland.
