Ban the Grinch and support a community Christmas

Ballycastle Idea stage

As a relatively newly formed community group we took on the herculean task last year of banishing the Grinch from our community and set about developing ideas of how to bring about a community Christmas, many many hours of discussions later we came up with the idea of a Narina based Winter Wonderland with the first ever ice rink in our community.... Unfortunately our success seems to have been our failure, with over 500 school children, 2500 local residents, over 1000 Santas presents and loads of happy kids, we are struggling to raise the money for this years project, which is to be based upon an Alice in Winter Wonderland Theme.... mad hatters tea party, over sized chairs, different sized doors for the kids to choose to go through, bigger ice rink but most of all to continue to provide a sense of community at Christmas

What we'll deliver:

  • Hopefully provide a real opportunity for the local community to engage and enjoy the real spirit of Christmas

Why it's a great idea:

To ensure that the Grinch and Scourge are banished from Ballycastle forever
Christmas is a time for everyone and we want to help make dreams happen.......we did last year.....for kids to enter through a wardrobe, pushing aside fur coats and entering into a chilled room with real christmas trees, snow and a Snow Queen on her very own Sleigh towed by Polar bears.....we set the bar very high last year but we really do want to make Christmas something special for those who maybe can't do it themselves, at Christmas we all had dreams so please help us make dreams come true for others

Steps to get it done:

  • By a very hardworking and dedicated team of volunteers, who ask for nothing in return other than making people happy
