Dunluce Pupil Making a Difference in the Community

We would like to celebrate the service to the local community made by Year 9 pupil Ruby Neill during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

Leanne Abernethy from the Bushmills Coronavirus Support Group reports that:

"Ruby helped with our Christmas events. One involved bringing Santa to the Village and making sure the kids got to see him, receiving a gift and adhering to Covid Regulations that were in place at that time. The other was making up gift parcels for the elderly, vulnerable or isolated in the Village as well as hand delivering to over 200 people.  Ruby was involved in the planning and implementation of both these.

On Saturday 5th June, the group held a ‘Big lunch’.  We made up over 200 afternoon tea parcels and hand delivered to members of the community (same criteria as Christmas).  We also organised the NI100 Centenary mini and Ice Cream Happiness to visit the Village on the day, free ice creams were given to anyone who came along to the Diamond.  Again, Ruby was a part of the whole process, and was at the Church Hall at 9am on a Saturday making sandwiches for people, then she put all in the bags to be delivered, sorted them out for all the volunteers to take to people and finally she hand delivered quite a few herself to those within walking distance."

Well done Ruby, everyone at Dunluce is extremely proud of you. Keep up the good work!
