Mrs Anne Bingham from Bingham’s Plant Nursery (191 Hillhead Road,Ballyclare) recently had hip surgery.  She is not the only in the family to have had this surgery, her sister Maree Hurst has also had hip replacement and their good friend Mary Crothers another valued supporter of BART, has also had a hip replacement.  

Bingham’s Plant Nursery, Mary and her family all support the annual BART Walk but this year Ian, Anne’s husband, has come up with something a little different!  With the help of Andrew Downey from Ballynure, both men planted bulbs in rows 60cm wide and just short of 2 miles long at a field close to the Nursery. Ian then contacted the BART office with the offer of donating the flowers to BART to assist them with their fund raising efforts  - all the BART team have to do is pick and sell them!  The team went to visit the family and the field and are excited to be part of this scheme!

Ian would like to thank Derick Turbitt, a daffodil breeder from Portstewart, who assisted by selecting the commercial bulbs and of course Andrew who helped with the planting. 

Thanks to the fab team at MPH restaurant for their continued support and to the staff, patients and visitors for their generous donations.  Total raised £117.75

According to the Charities Aid Foundation we spend £2.1 billion on unwanted Christmas presents. That means on average we each received at least two unwanted presents.

Whether you’ve already got one the same, or simply not your style – re-gifting presents for the tombola at the BART Walk held each year in June can be a simple yet very effective way of helping us fund projects in the year ahead.  Please contact Beverley at the BART office 02890 683530 or 07743602725

Alison has been a BART supporter for many years and one of the ways she raises money is by collecting all the family's loose change.  Her efforts in 2018 raised £75. What a great way to fund raise without leaving the house!

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2019!
