Do you remember…
If you are in P4-7, a member of staff, or a parent of a child that has left Ballyholme PS or Bangor Central IPS, you may remember that way back in 2016 you helped to raise nearly £6000 in Smarties tubes for the Campbell and McFerran families to take to Tanzania in East Africa. The families raised £15,000 in total to be solely used on projects either while they were there or to be continued after they had left. Click here for more information and pictures
