The Bushmills Inn has raised £6,000 for the Northern Ireland Children to Lapland and Days to Remember Trust. The money played an instrumental role in a trip to Lapland on December 17 for terminally ill and life-limited children.

“We are thrilled that our fundraising efforts have generated £6,000 so far this year to support the Northern Ireland Children to Lapland and Days to Remember Trust as they fulfil the dreams of terminally ill, life-limited and deserving children by taking them to see Santa at his home in Lapland,” said Alan Walls, hotel manager, The Bushmills Inn.

“Earlier this year we formalised our association with the charity which stretches back over the last three years. With the support of our generous customers and our own donations we have now raised over £21,700 to help the charity create magical memories that families can treasure forever. It is such a deserving cause and we have more initiatives and events organised to generate even more funds to make the dreams of more children come true.”

Colin Barkley, chair, Northern Ireland Children to Lapland and Days to Remember Trust, said: “This donation is very timely and I want to thank The Bushmills Inn and all their customers for their generosity.

“The Bushmills Inn has been supporting the charity for the last three years and they have raised a significant amount, making a huge difference to the lives of deserving, terminally and long-term ill children.”

In Northern Ireland, at any given time, there are approximately 1,500 children suffering from a terminal illness or life limiting illness.
