Daniel O’Donnell to visit children of Donard School

Wednesday, 1 February 2017

BANBRIDGE will be buzzing with excitement when Daniel O'Donnell arrives in town next Monday (6 February) to perform to a packed audience in the Parish Centre, Scarva Road, Banbridge.

Tickets for the show, which has been organised by Banbridge Rotary Club, are in high demand and indeed were sold out in just over an hour when they went on sale in Banbridge in December.

All proceeds of the show are going to three charities- the Southern Area Hospice, Tiny Life and Donegal Mind Wellness.

And while in Banbridge, Daniel plans to pay a visit to local schoolchildren.

“In keeping with his very caring nature, Daniel has also arranged to make a private visit to the pupils of Donard Special School in Banbridge earlier that day," a Rotary spokesman said.

“Here he will be greeted by the principal, Mrs Edel Lavery and her staff and he will then go on to meet the pupils, who are planning a very special welcome for him.

“Daniel has always shown a special rapport for people with special needs in the community and the pupils of Donard are already very excited at the prospect of meeting such a famous entertainer."
