At Ballymena Today we often blog about the work of the Portglenone Community Rescue Service who help to provide rural and urban search, water rescue and community support and education. The team is made up of volunteers and rely on community fundraising to fund lots of their vital training and to buy equipment.
Portglenone Community Rescue Service Needs You
Portglenone Community Rescue Service have been shortlisted as the Local Charity of the year by Sainsburys in Ballymena. Sainsburys say:
It’s important we continue to make a positive difference to our customers’ communities, and our colleagues. Every year customers and colleagues at all our stores, distribution centres and store support centres choose their Local Charity of the Year.
