Snapshot: Trolly dash in Northern Ireland

Trolley dash Northern Ireland cancer charity Friends of Montgomery House ran a Marks and Spencer supermarket trolley down a Belfast shopping street last week to celebrate one of its largest ever corporate donations.

Staff at Marks and Spencer's Belfast store raised almost £9,000 from a wide variety of fundraising events and staff collections, which was then matched by the company. It had chosen the charity based in Belvoir Park Hospital as its 2003 charity of the year after close links forged by two former staff members who died of cancer. Being pushed by three company representatives is Chrissie Lynch, a volunteer at the charity, who said: "I am thrilled with the staff's sterling fundraising efforts, which will go a long way towards funding our recently installed MRI scanner and other essential patient comforts."
