Thousands of pounds have been raised during a charity event for the Williams Syndrome Foundation.

Carrickfergus couple Claire and David Bell hosted the event to boost awareness of the rare genetic disorder.

Their baby son, Daniel was diagnosed with Williams Syndrome (WS) in December last year.

Over £5000 was raised for the WSF during a charity football match on April 30 at Beltoy Playing Fields, followed by a raffle and auction evening at Knockagh Lodge.
