Orangemen from County Antrim are to raise money for the benevolent associations connected to the two soldiers and the police officer murdered a few weeks ago.
Members of Randalstown District LOL 22 are to hold a coffee morning in Randalstown Memorial Orange Hall this Saturday, April 4 between 10am and 1pm.
A spokesman said:
“The whole community was shocked at the recent violence which claimed the lives of Sappers Mark Quinsey and Patrick Azimkar, and PSNI constable Stephen Carroll. We wanted to let their colleagues know that we appreciate their service to the community and we thought the best way to do this was to raise funds for the benevolent associations, which help to support widows and families, the injured and disabled.
“We hope that the local community will give strong support to the work of the associations.”
