The Waterside Neighbourhood Partnership (W.N.P.) through the Neighbourhood Health Improvement Project (N.H.I.P.) is organising a car boot sale with a difference.

The car boot sale will take place at the Shared Future Building (the former site of Clondermott High School) this Saturday and as well as picking up a bargain those attending will also be able to avail of a number of health checks and therapies.

The car boot sale will run from 9a.m. until 1p.m and the event will include health checks, massage therapies, health information and healthy cooking demonstrations.

It costs £5 to enter the car boot sale and all monies raised will be donated to a local mental health charity.

People are also encouraged to bring along their bicycles as there will be a ‘Bike Doctor’ offering small repairs.

The W.N.P. is also organising a special walk from Portrush to Giant’s Causeway on Saturday June 4. Tea and coffee will be available at the end of the walk and there will be various pick-up points along the route for people unable to walk the entire eight miles. A free bus will transport walkers from Derry to Portrush at 9a.m. on June 4.

There are still places available and anyone interested in taking part in either the car boot sale or the walk is advised to contact their local community centre or telephone Health Development Officer Rhonda Boyd on 028 71 342 959.
