A BIG crowd turned out for the David Carney benefit night this at The Grove House Dunleer.
David, from Bolies Bog Road Stabannon, died after a short illness, aged just 38, and only six years after his marriage to Clodagh.
The benefit night has been organised by The Coasters Motorcycle Club.
David was an active and very popular member of the Coasters MCC and took part in their annual Christmas and Easter toy runs to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital and the Women’s Aid refuge.
The club members also visit schools and nursing homes in Dunleer and Castlebellingham and on many occasions David gallantly played the role of Santa Claus.
On Good Friday, shortly before his death, he insisted on travelling with his colleagues for their visit to the children’s ward of Our Lady of Lourdes to give presents to the young patients.
Larry Lennon of the Coasters MCC said David was a biker with a big heart, a kind and generous man, and the club is asking everybody who can to support the fundraiser.
Appearing on the night were Jennifer Reynolds, Barry Pritchard, The Full Shilling, Country Sound.
The DJ was David Lessard.
The Coasters would like to thank everyone who supported the night.
