PANDA PLAYGROUND Ballymacarbry Community Centre are working on an exciting new project to build a playground on our premises, providing a safe space where children of our community can explore and play. The playground will be named “Panda Playground”, which was aptly named after local hero Danny Norris, who loved all things Panda and sadly passed away last year at the age of 7. This playground will be built in his memory, and what an appropriate legacy to a fun loving, mischievous young man. We need your help to raise additional funds to bring the project to completion stage.
We know what a wonderful community we have in Ballymacarbry and the support you have provided to the Community Centre over the years has been phenomenal. This addition to the facility will provide so much enjoyment for the younger generation. We would be very appreciative of any contribution you could make to this fundraiser.
