Well done Black Santa! thumbnailFormer UUP leader and broadcaster Mike Nesbitt came up to spend a few hours with Liam. WK52-AM-201

BALLYMONEY Black Santa Liam Beckett had a host of Northern Ireland notables calling to visit during his 10th sit out including Belfast boxing icon Carl Frampton.
As usual all money raised will be divided equally between Drop Inn Ministries, St Vincent de Paul, The Samaritans, The Salvation Army, and CAN.
Speaking just before he completed this years effort, Liam said: "Whilst we are relying on the counters to come up with the final total, my feeling is that we were up most days in terms of takings.
“The first week was dreadfully cold, fortunately it was mild on the second week and I was delighted that so many colleagues and friends came from all over the province to see me.
“One of the stand out men is Fleming Keery who walked all the way from Drumbo near Lisburn.
“My good friend Carl Frampton took time out of his busy schedule to come to Ballymoney to support me, a man who does a lot for charity in his own right."
