Long time friend of the BDA Northern Ireland, Elizabeth McAughtry MBE, organised a second Gala Dinner Dance just before Christmas with proceeds being split between the BDA (NI) and the Southern Hospice.

The event was a great success with many superb prizes being raffled and auctioned including a Manchester United signed football and a Liverpool signed football top. Everyone there had a fantastic time and in total £3,335 was raised.

Our very sincere thank to Elizabeth who works so hard to arranged these events and is always so willing to help. We really appreciate all she does for the BDA (NI) and to those who attended in support we also say a big thank you.
