In early April 2014, G.E.L.S were invited to attend the Ballinasloe Mayor’s Awards,being held in The Carlton Sheerwater Hotel on May 1st 2014, as nominiees for not just one but two awards. We were nominated for Social and Community Support and the Special Recognition catagories. This was a huge honour for us and we were very proud to be able to accept this invitation
This was to be a very special occasion not just for us as a group but also Ballinasloe as a town, as it was to be the last Mayor’s Awards to be hosted by Ballinasloe Town Mayor, Mike Kelly.
A great night was being had by everyone who attended this event, and when the time came to announce the winners of each catagory and our name, Galway East Life Support, was announced it was with tremendous pride and honour that we were able to accecpt the award for Social And Community Support.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank The Carlton Sheerwater Hotel, for hosting a fantastinc evening, and a MASSIVE THANK YOU has to go to Mayor Mike Kelly who gave so much of his time and support to G.E.L.S. and Ballinasloe Town, throughout his time as Mayor. We wish Mike all the best for the future
With the G.E.L.S. Office now open in Cullens Yard, just off Main St. it has become the home for the Award and has pride of place in the building, and is on display for all to see.
