Local Fire Brigade’s Gift to the Railway

The DCDR has been given a given a very generous donation of £500 by the local Downpatrick station of the Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service.

The local Fire Brigade have an annual collection every year for their favourite charities, and this year the DCDR was selected.

Finance Officer John Beaumont and Hon. Vice President Michael Collins, representing Chairman John Wilson, attended a reception at Downpatrick Fire Station last Wednesday night to receive the donation.

Downpatrick Fire Brigade had previously, of course, been instrumental in saving our station building from total destruction after an arson attack in the early hours of Boxing Day in 2002.

Our sincere thanks go to the crews at the Fire Station.
