Never Mind the Business, a unique music themed fundraising event held in support of Action for Children Northern Ireland, rocked the Ramada last week to raise record funds for the charity.

Over 200 music fans were treated to a performance by Belfast's own Brian Houston at the event, which was hosted by Ralph McLean.

Teams from businesses across Northern Ireland then battled it out at the massive music quiz - which included a sing-along lyrics round and a round of 'classic album covers' – before the coveted gold disc prize was lifted by the team from Oh Yeah music centre in Belfast.

A total of £19,000 was raised to help to transform the lives of the country's most vulnerable children, young people and families.

Helen Quigley, Action for Children Northern Ireland partnership fundraising manager, said: "We've hosted this event in Belfast for five years now and the competition grow stronger at every event. All of the money raised at Never Mind the Business will be used to support Northern Ireland's most vulnerable and disadvantaged children, young people and families.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved for making the event such a success. Together we will continue to speak out for Northern Ireland's most vulnerable and neglected children and young people – for as long as it takes."

Action for Children Northern Ireland supports nearly 5,000 children, young people and their families to break through injustice, deprivation and inequality each year; helping them to transform their lives and achieve their full potential. To find out more about the charity's work, please visit
