Marcus and Aimee Kane’s #HikeForHarrie campaign to raise £10,00 for bereavement services at RVH Maternity went from strength to strength this weekend. The appeal total stood at an incredible £19,322!
Below are just a few of the examples of the activities undertaken by Glentoran Supporters Clubs in support of #HikeForHarrie. Later in the week we will publish photographs of people within Glentoran, members of the Glentoran Family and players, officials and supporters of other clubs playing their part in the #HikeForHarrie campaign. If you have any photographs of your own activities, please forward them to email@example.com
