Wright, said ”We are delighted to become a Fundraising Partner to Remember Us Special Needs Group considering what a fantastic group it is with members from age 4years through to Adults availing of the clubs, the family respite breaks, the summer programme etc.  Remember Us is working so hard to raise the funds to buy their own home and we are committed to helping them, as a fundraising partner to achieving that.”

Jean, from Remember Us said “we are delighted that The Wright Venue has come on board to help up raise the funds to buy our much needed base. We would really like to thank Suzanne Mulvey for all her support and for organising such a  great night and a special thanks to Dean Sherry the D.J. for the night and to all the bar and security staff.”

Jean also said a big thank you to all the Volunteers, “without whom the Club couldn’t operate.”

“We are now half way to our target and we are so grateful to the many community groups and businesses that have already come on board. We know that, with their continued support, we will buy our own ‘Home’.
