Cruse Bereavement Support was the chosen charity to benefit from funds raised at the Northern Ireland Grain Trade Association’s 56th Annual Dinner held in April.

NIGTA President Patrick McLaughlin and CEO Gill Gallagher were delighted to present a cheque for £4,800 to Thelma Abernethy, Head of Cruse Bereavement Support NI and Elaine Brannigan, Community Fundraising and Engagement Manager.  At the presentation, Patrick commented on the invaluable support, advice and information provided by the charity to children and adults when they lose someone close to them.

On receiving the donation, Thelma thanked NIGTA for their generous support, and highlighted the additional workstreams of the charity which also campaigns for improved bereavement support and offers bereavement training in the workplace.
