Celebrating Success at The Mayors' Community Awards 2017

Posted on March 17, 2017

Inspire Business Centre celebrated success as two of their nominees receive awards from LCCC Mayor Cllr Brian Bloomfield.

Mayors' Community Awards 2017

75 nominations resulted in 8 awards.

The Awards, held in La Mon Hotel on Thursday 16th March, recognised the voluntary and community sectors’ input and dedication to community life across Lisburn and Castlereagh.

The Categories for Nomination, were reflective of work and efforts solely within the Council area and we are delighted to say that two of our nominees were successful as follows:

Steven Thomson (A1 Accounting) - Fundraiser of the Year.

Steven has been an avid fundraiser for the past 6 years and he has made a significant contribution towards sustaining the work of community and voluntary groups in The Council Area.

Robbie Rea (Brooklands Youth Centre) - The Brian McDowell Life Long Commitment Award 

This award is in memory of the well-known local resident, Mr Brian McDowell, who died at the beginning of this year.  Robbie has served the local community for over 20 years, making a significant difference to the lives of others.  Robbie was unfortunately unable to attend the event therefore his wife collected the award on his behalf.
