Here at Ballymena Today we love heading out for a meal to a good Ballymena restaurant like Gillies, Millside or The Eagle and we love a trip to Ballymena Cinema for the latest big release but sometime you cant beat a good night in. Macmillan Cancer are encouraging us all to hold a Macmillan Night In and contribute the money you saved by staying in to the cancer charity.
There are a million ways the money you and your girls raise from your Night In can help support people with cancer.
From supporting people through treatment, and campaigning for better care, to being just a phone-call away in times of need; at Macmillan we’re here to provide emotional, practical and medical support from trained professionals. And because we know how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything, we’re there for carers, communities, families and of course, friends too. (Source)
Ballymena Today loves a Macmillan Night In
Here are some tips from Ballymena Today which will help you to arrange your Night in.
Get in some locally sourced treats. We love these Hot Chocolate Shots from Flossy Treats in Ballymena. Get i some of these and boil up some milk and your hot chocolate is ready to go! Click here to find out more. Flossy Treats say:
Flossy Treats have concocted the perfect hot chocolate recipe. And, as well as that we have built it into a tasty little package which is ready to go. Just pop you Hot Chocolate shot into hot, frothy milk and stir. The results are a delicious, warming and sweet chocolate drink. You don’t need to worry about remembering to get marshmallows because we have even added them along with tasty chunks of Flossy Treats fudge. Mmmm, our mouths are watering just thinking about it.
Pick up a classic. Grab a DVD that you know everyone will love. Pick up a classic that everyone know (so you don’t necessarily have to concentrate on the story) and that has some iconic scenes. We love something like Footloose, Top Gun or Clueless. Good quality entertainment!
Dig up your old Record Collection. A few months ago at Ballymena Today we had a Vinyl party where our friends all brought over their dodgy records from years gone by. Find a record player that works and then pop your vinyl on and enjoy that blast from the past. Look at the hits we uncovered! If you are interested in investing in more vinyl pop into Track Records on Hill Street in Ballymena
Give a Gift. Get some t-shirts printed for your guest to remember the night. Work out the theme for the night and get a slogan printed on a tee. For example if you are having some papmering and make overs at your night in get the curling tongs out and go for “Girls with Curls”! You get the idea! Check out Quest Screen Printing who offer bespoke t-shirt printing and even do small orders.
Still not sure, just watch this.
