Snow Patrol's Gary Lightbody visits Glebe

Harmony Community Trust’s Glebe House had special visitors on Friday 4th June 2010 when Gary Lightbody, the Internationally famous band Snow Patrol's lead singer, took time out from his sellout European tour to pay a visit with BBC Children in Need to meet children and young people involved with the Centre as both users and volunteers. Harmony is grateful to receive support from Children in Need.

Awaiting his arrival the excited local children were kept happily amused by the volunteer staff with a simple, but so effective, game.

Gary, originally from Bangor, had a tour of the facilities and ‘met’ the donkeys.

There was then a presentation from: Helen Honeyman, HCT Chairperson, who spoke about the work and facilities, then a child who has stayed at Glebe and a volunteer spoke about how Glebe House had influenced their lives.

Gary spent some time signing autographs for the many children and adults.He said: "It's been great to see the work Children in Need is able to do in my local area thanks to the generosity of the public”.
