Charities urged to apply for £30,000 of funding after firework success

FOLLOWING a successful Dunorlan Fireworks event last November, the RTW Round Table is urging charities and good causes to contact them for a share of £30,000.

The men’s fundraising group, which has been hosting the fireworks in Dunorlan Park for 60 years, is set to give away the money raised from last year’s event.

It comes after the group struggled to give away a record haul from the previous year, after not enough good causes came forward.

But Chairman Kieran Timoney said he didn’t think there would be issues this year.

“The cost-of-living crisis, rising inflation and a pending recession means that times are tough for all, especially local charities and organisations, so we very much hope that our giveaway will provide them with a much-needed boost to start the year,” he told the Times.

The head of the charity committee, Dal Jaswal, added: “We like to support individual projects and the purchasing of goods or equipment rather than funding day-to-day running costs.”

All local charities and organisations are able to apply for the funds.

Applications are open until January 31 at:
