Special Stars Become Stena Line Superstars

Monkstown Community Association is taking young people from the Monkstown Special Stars group on a Stena line Superstars event thanks to a £500 Community Development Grant from Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council.

The aim of the Community Development Grant Aid is to provide financial support for projects which have Community Development as a primary objective that improve the lives of local people. Projects must also develop a strong, healthy and vibrant community whilst encouraging maximum participation in community life by all residents.

The Monkstown Special Starts group meets every Saturday morning and consists of children who have a disability including Asperger's, ADHD and Down syndrome.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey Councillor Billy Webb said

“I am delighted that Monkstown Community Association were successful in securing funding through the Community Development Grant and I am sure the children will benefit by having a special day out on board Stena Line”.
