Ascert Local Youth Drama Group Raises an Outstanding £1,417 

ASCERT CEO Gary McMichael thanked everyone involved with the fundraising events explaining how grateful everyone at the charity is for the support given.  

“Not only did these young people learn about the harm caused by alcohol and drugs, they have highlighted these issues in their local communities through the performances of the play and with all their awareness raising” 

Gary continued “Even if only one person reconsiders their choices around substances, then that has made a positive difference and is ultimately what ASCERT exists for.  We welcome the opportunity to partner with any organisation, school or group to raise awareness on alcohol and drugs and would ask anyone considering supporting a local charity to get in touch with us for a chat about how we could work together to make positive change happen”

ASCERT can be contacted in person at their offices in Lisburn, Belfast and Omagh or by calling 0800 254 5123 or emailing  Self help information and referral forms are available on the charity’s website
