Some very worthwhile donations have been received for the raffle and auction.

“As Ryan’s family we want to express our sincere thanks to all who have supported us through this very trying time, thank you for your thoughts and prayers and all the items donated for the auction and raffle. 
“Thanks also go to Maurice Bradley for donating the Cup. 
“Above all thanks go to Glebe Rangers and Balnamore Football Clubs for playing the match and your wonderful support over these past months.
“Also, thanks to Coleraine Football Club for the use of their ground and facilities. Ryan was a very keen Coleraine FC supporter and enjoyed watching many matches over the years at the Showgrounds. 
“We hope many people will plan to attend so we can raise as much money as possible which will all go to Turning Point NI, Ballymena, an organisation aiming to reduce the intensity of suicide and self harming behaviours within the area and support for families who have been bereaved by suicide”.
