Big Wet Fish Hosting are proud to be part of the Community in Carrickfergus. We are happy to support local activities both financially and practically. It’s been an incredibly busy few months and we have supported the following groups. We’re having to put a temporary stop to ‘saying yes’ when approached so if we have referred you to this page we thank you for understanding.
Carrickfergus Rugby Club 7’s Side – May 2019
We are one of three shirt sponsors for the annual May Bank Holiday Weekend in Carrickfergus. The team made it to the Bowl final and were unlucky to get beaten. We joined Centra Clipperstown and Harrys Barbershop in Greenisland as Shirt Sponsors.
Carrickfergus Rugby Club Under 14’s Cup Final – May 2019
The Rugby Club were calling at local businesses asking for donations to help pay for buses, food and t shirts to make a memorable day for the Under 14 team who are playing in a final of their age group at Kingspan Stadium on 11 May 2019. We were happy to oblige with a donation.
Megans Wish Charity & Carrickfergus Golf Club – August 2019
Megans Wish is a local charity set up to help children living with scoliosis. Megan Fleming is very well known in our local community and she does great work fund-raising for this great charity set up in her name. Carrickfergus Golf Club Captain is organising a charity event in August 2019 and we’re proud to be sponsoring one of the 18 holes. Best wishes for this event and we hope it raises a lot of money for this great cause. Check out the Megans Wish Facebook Page here: https://www.facebook.com/meganswish1/
Youth Romania Team – July 2019
One of our staff members is a co-leader on a youth trip to Romania this summer. As part of this we were happy to be able to attend a recent car wash organised by the youth of a local Church to help them raise money for this trip with an organisation called Exodus. Happy to accept the invitation to attend and make a donation from the business to support our staff member and the others on this trip.
Children’s Hospice Strictly Come Dancing Event – 2019
A local Primary School (Sunnylands Primary School) organised an event locally to help raise money for the local Children’s Hospice. We were asked to take an advert in the programme and we were happy to oblige
Woodlands Football Club – Kit Sponsor 2018/2019 Season
A local football team approached us to ask if we would consider sponsoring their kit for the 2018/2019 season. We were happy to oblige and we’re pleased to report that the team have performed very well this season. Check out the team page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WoodlandsFCCarrick/
Carrickfergus Festival of Christmas Trees – December 2018
We had a Big Wet Fish Tree at a local Christmas Tree Festival in December in aid of a building project in Carrickfergus Methodist Church. We were happy to help and make a donation to the event. The tree was also sold for someone to take home for Christmas after the event to raise more money.
Local College Work experience placements
Although not technically a charity donation we always facilitate the local Further Education Colleges and take students on work placement. Students on Work Placement actually cost us staff time to induct and train so we count this as part of our giving back to the future generation. This year we’ve had 2 placement students from Northern Regional College, 1 placement student from Belfast Metropolitan College and 1 placement student from Ulster University
