LegenDerry on Ice ran from November 28th to January 18th and the branch was again given collection rights.

A fantastic team of volunteers collected a fabulous £4000 over the seven weeks of LegenDerry on Ice , making a total of £6055.19. Tim, Brian and Kenny, who own LegenDerry on Ice, again presented the Association with £3000, bringing their total contribution to an extremely generous £6000.
