Car Wash Success

Congratulations to the  Interact Club of Belfast on their highly successful Car Wash event last Saturday 17 November outside the Lisburn Road Fire Station. Helped by the Fire Station crew - who also even collected on the road! - just under £3000 was raised which is being split between the Interact Club and the Fireman's charities (just under £1,500 each).   Thank you to all who brought cars to be washed(they lost count!)   A wonderful 1st event - which ended with a sponge fight at the end! - for this fledgling Club.

We appreciate the tremendous amount of service already given by members but are looking forward to encouraging new members to join. Any prospective member is most welcome at any of our Monday meetings.
