The programme has

themselves.”
Concluding, Mrs Hobson
said: “On behalf of the
Dungannon fundraising
committee I would like to
extend our condolences
to the NI Simmental Club
on the loss of its highly
esteemed committee
member Thelma Gorman.
We were deeply saddened
to hear of her passing.
We had the pleasure of
working with Thelma at the
barbecue in August and
she was a real inspiration.
“Thelma kept us
organised in the kitchen
and was the linchpin of a
very enjoyable night which
raised £6,200 for NSPCC.”
Club chairman Matthew
Cunning expressed his

auction.
