£60,000 RAISED AS GUESTS HAVE A BALL

LOCAL charity SAM (Struggle Against Muscular-Dystrophy) netted a massive £60,000 from its inaugural 'Emerald Ball' at Belfast's Europa Hotel last week.

Hillsborough woman and charity founder Tracy McCausland, whose own son Sam suffers from Congenital Muscular Dystrophy, described the all new black-tie event, hosted this year by actor James Nesbitt and TV personality Emma-Louise Johnston, as "a fabulous evening".

The ball got underway with a champagne reception, to musical accompaniment from the Nua Band.
