Pauline’s big fundraiser for BUMBLEance
Pauline Moyles Robinson of Kilmacrennan and Ramelton Post Office is busy preparing for her big fundraising parachute jump in aid of the BUMBLEance, The National Children’s Ambulance Service.
A number of important fundraisers are being organised beginning on this Friday night in O’Donnell’s Bar Ramelton with a big quiz night. You are asked to arrive at nine o’clock with the quiz getting underway at 9.30.
