You are here: Local Women Mid-Ulster
At the risk of sounding sexist – it’s women who get things done! Now, I’m not saying that our men folk aren’t great, but when it comes to bringing things together us girls are the multi-taskers.
I’m always amazed when I read the stories in Local Women about ordinary women doing extraordinary things. As well as raising families and working, they always seem to have time to give to charity projects or to help others.
This month we have been speaking to a group of women from The Loup who are giving back to their community.
The Loup Women’s Gardening Project is such a wonderful initiative, set up to simply make the area in which they live a nicer place.
And in these busy times when we all seem to be constantly rushing about, they are making a real effort to bring the community together.
We look at their latest project which is to provide free herbs for the residents of The Loup and meet the green .ngered members who give up their time to make their community a better place.
Also working to make things better for other people is Niamh Scullion from Magherafelt Young Niamh gives up much of her free time to fundraise for a special project that takes children with life limiting conditions on special holidays where they can make memories with their families.
Niamh has been running marathons to raise money for Destination Dreams and later this year she will once again travel to Florida to help the children and their families enjoy the trip of a life time. I hope you enjoy this month’s Local Women. We’ve got a great mix of stories, fashion and pictures from the social events that you love. If you have a story you would like to see featured in Local Women, please get in touch.
Until next month,
