The Mayor of Lisburn, Councillor Margaret Tolerton launched her forthcoming Charity Breakfast at Caf� Vic Ryn with Hilda Francey, Diabetes Specialist Nurse and Jacqueline Evans, proprietor of Caf� Vic Ryn. The Lagan Valley Diabetes Unit will benefit from all tickets sales.

A fundraising breakfast on behalf of The Lagan Valley Diabetes Unit has been organised by the Lisburn City Mayor.

Café Vic Ryn will host the event from 8am on Friday March 7.

The Mayor, Councillor Margaret Tolerton, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Jacqueline Evans, proprietor of Café Vic Ryn, for her very generous offer to help raise money for my Mayoral Charity.

“If you would like to enjoy the fabulous breakfast delights of Café Vic Ryn and support this very worthwhile cause then please join us. Dr Janet Gray, MBE will be the guest speaker at the event.”

She continued: “Breakfast choices will include cereal, scones, porridge, toast, scrambled eggs, mini or large fry’s with a hot beverage of your choice.

“Tickets are priced at £10 and can be either bought in advance from my office or on the day in Café Vic Ryn. My chosen charity offers an invaluable service to all diabetics within the Lagan Valley area.

“I nominated The Lagan Valley Diabetes Unit as my mayoral charity because this excellent service would like to increase the support it offers to its patients but does not currently have the financial resources to do so.”

Mrs Tolerton added: “With the money raised during my mayoral term the charity would like to purchase items including insulin pumps for the blind and partially sighted, which are priced at £3,000 each.”

“I would like to see as many residents as possible show their support for this local charity and enjoy the high quality food of Café Vic Ryn,” she concluded.

To purchase your ticket for Breakfast with the Mayor priced at £10 please contact the Mayor’s Office on 028 9250 9331 or email: mayors.secretary@lisburn.gov.uk
