Housing Executive staff in Mid-Ulster cooked up over £800 with sizzling fry-ups for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Magherafelt staff decided to buy sausages, bacon, eggs and all the other goodies needed for a tasty fry – with Mary’s Bar in the town generously offered to cook the food free of charge. They raised a bumper £350 for the cancer charity.

Meanwhile, staff in the Cookstown and Dungannon offices held their own breakfast fry-ups and raise another £450.

Sharon Crooks, the Housing Executive’s area manager for Mid Ulster said: “This was an excellent way to raise funds for a very worthy cause. So many local people are affected by cancer and we are delighted to help a little by make this donation to Macmillan.

“We had a great turn out on the day and everyone left well fed. I’d like to thank Mary’s Bar for cooking our delicious fundraising breakfast in Magherafelt.

“The total raised for Macmillan was £800. Huge thanks to all the staff who supported the event. Well done everyone.”
