Drumfork Community Centre Manger, Shelley Gilmour added “We welcomed a great mix of age groups through the doors of Drumfork Community Centre on Saturday 22nd October 2022. Feedback was very positive and highlights were that it was good to spend time meeting new people and playing games with family members and friends. Not to mention meeting our very special guest, The Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity Mascot, Nelson the Sailor Cat! We had a great range of games for all ages, from playing cards, chess and operation to jenga, Oculus and Nintendo Switch. There was a great variety for all! Not to mention our glitter tattoo station, which proved very popular across all ages.”

John also added ” thank you to the submarine family for their generous support and contribution. It helped create an fantastic day for all who came”
