£800 has been raised for Southern Area Hospice following the Newry Cruise charity cvent.

Representatives from Ignition 247, PSNI, Southern Partnership Peace III and Around A Pound presented a cheque for £800 to Southern Area Hospice

Organised in partnership by Ignition 247, Newry and Mourne PSNI and Connect III, the event took place on Saturday, 7th December and over 800 modified and performance cars attended with more than 1000 people.

The PSNI brought along their new modified R32 Golf which demonstrated how your car can be legally modified. The R32 was funded through Peace III.

NIFRS were also in attendance and demonstrated how victims of a traffic collision have to be cut out.

Speaking to Newry Times, Constable Kenny Gracey, Newry Neighbourhood Policing Team, said, “We have worked alongside Ignition 247 on a number of events and the car cruises seem to be growing in popularity.

“It is invaluable in helping us build relationships with young drivers and those who want to make their car their own while staying within the law.

“It was also a great opportunity to raise some money for the local hospice which makes such a difference to the lives of so many in this area,” he added.

Ignition 247 expressed their thanks to all who attended and took part in the cruise with special thanks to Newry and Mourne PSNI, Connect III and Northern Ireland Fire and Rescue Service.
