Ballycastle gets Spinning

Spinning in Ballycastle

Spinning in Ballycastle

Over 80 enthusiastic 'spinners' took part in a Spinathon event held in the Sheskburn Leisure Centre, Ballycastle on Saturday 28th March 2009. 

The 6 hour spinathon was the idea of local man Chris McAuley in memory of his baby daughter Erin. 

With a new bunch of recruits attending every hour Chris, ably assisted by Grace McMullan put the spinners through their paces.  They generated enough energy to power Ballycastle for a month!

Thanks to everyone who took part and made donations, and to the local businesses who so willingly supported the event.  Over £3000 was raised on the day and the money is still rolling in.

A fitting tribute to baby Erin McAuley.
