Congratulations to Gary, Ryan and Johnny McClurg from our team who recently passed their caving level one instructors course. This will add a further option to the abundance of activities we can deliver with our groups!
Thanks to our partnership with the Belfast Activity Centre who provided the training and facilities to make this possible!
"I'm very happy to have gained the caving level 1 instructors award. Another string to the bow for taking groups on sessions!"
St. Patrick's Glen, St.Mary's and Maghera Primary Schools were treated to a sugar awareness and dodgeball session at Meadowbank Sports Arena by our young leaders from Magherafelt High School and St Patrick's College! The afternoon was a great way for them to put their new skill set into practice and was followed by a short presentation where they all received their awards!
Well done to our young leaders! #BigLotteryFundNI #Maghera

We held a danderball tournament at the Shankill Leisure Centre in memory ofour former colleague Colin Smyth (Smickers) who passed away 10 year ago. It was a great turnout as 8 teams competed in an action packed morning of walking football. Well done to Stephen Smyth's team who won a hard fought final on penalties against an impressive Ards side!
Thanks to everyone who attended. You helped raise over £350 for MacMillan Cancer Support!

Yesterday evening our team took part in a positive mental health awareness session lead by the @UlsterResImpact!
This course has been created by StateofMindIreland to support students at Ulster University to make them aware of the issues and solutions around mental health. The intention is for BCSDN Facilitators to be able to deliver this session to their community and school groups at some point in the future. #MentalHealthAwareness
