Glens Winter Festival
It’s well known that Northern Ireland has the highest rates of mental-ill health in the UK. This means that at any one time here, 1 in 5 people will be experiencing a mental health issue.
Yesterday (Sunday 2nd May), the Glentoran Family was at its very best when club supporters, volunteers, players and coaches took part in a sponsored walk in support of the 10K by May campaign run by Belfast and Lisburn Women’s Aid.
Glentoran Supporter Liaison Officer and GFC 1882 Director Colin Davidson recently undertook a very successful sponsored walk, raising £2,080 for the Larder Foodbank at St Christopher’s Church in Mersey Street. The photo above shows Colin presenting the cheque to Louise Hamilton at the Larder.
Glentoran Football Club is joining forces with NIFL, the IFA and sporting bodies and clubs across the United Kingdom in boycotting social media this weekend, to raise awareness of ongoing online abuse directed towards players and officials.
The boycott begins on Friday at 3pm, running right through until Monday 3rd May at 23.59.
Unfortunately this means that we won’t be able to bring you out normal social media updates on what is a massive Saturday of football, but we will still be streaming the “Big Two” match on Saturday live through GlensTV and 247.media.
