The Ortus Group chooses Children’s Heartbeat Trust as Annual Charity Partner

The Ortus Group has announced it has partnered with Children’s Heartbeat Trust in 2016/17 to raise vital funds for the charity.

Ortus run a number of charity and community events throughout the year for different charities but this year has decided to focus on an annual cause within the community. The company is planning on organising a range of internal and external events to support the annual contribution as well as partaking in Children’s Heartbeat Trust campaigns.

In 2015, Ortus’ 8th Annual Charity Golf Day took place for Children’s Heartbeat Trust raising £7,000 for the charity. The funds were used to

  • Provide 83 confidential family counselling sessions. This is available to all heart families through Carecall and has been highly beneficial.
  • Furnish two brand new respite caravans in Newcastle and Ballycastle so that heart families can get a break from the stresses of daily living with heart disease and the hospital environment.  57 families will enjoy staying in them this year.

“We are pleased to welcome the Talkin Heads team to Dairy Farm Shopping Centre. The business has been a leading salon in Colin Area for many years and their relocation allows them to continue to serve the local area as well as grow their client base within Dairy Farm.

Dairy Farm Shopping Centre has recently gone through several redevelopments and we are looking forward to announcing a number of new retailers and services coming to the centre in the coming months. In addition, our monthly market is continuing to grow taking place on the first Thursday of each month and continuous events throughout the year. We urge you to keep in touch via Facebook for all centre updates.”
