Marching for charity is just the latest in a long list of innovative ways Orangemen raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity every year...

Whilst Orangemen are renowned for their walking, two million steps in one month is still quite a feat. However, this is the collective target set by seven intrepid brethren who will be putting their best foot forward throughout the duration of July.

Fortunately for those participating their step counter will be greatly increased as the challenge comes at the height of the parading season, with a number of flagship demonstrations taking place – including the Twelfth.

Proceeds from the innovative fundraiser will be split between the Drew Nelson legacy project and Gospel Goal, which is an initiative aimed at promoting the Christian message in local football.

Others were...

Walking in aid of the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice, the Co Down brethren aim to ascend Slieve Donard, Snowdon (Wales), Scaffell Pike (England) and Ben Nevis (Scotland). As well as completing the gruelling task in the space of 96 hours, they also will be carrying a Lambeg drum – again - to the summit of each mountain.

Almost £30,000 has already been raised for the children’s charity through


LOL 423 has a distinguished track record for charitable outreach, having previously raised £120,000 for Help for Heroes by carrying a Lambeg on the Williamite trail from Carrickfergus to the Boyne. This preceded the mammoth cycle from John O’Groats to Lands End. In separate ventures, £7,500 and £2,200 have been raised for the Cancer Fund for Children and orphans in Ghana respectively.

This is like the vote Yes for compassion even though abortion even when it is necessary is a violent and cruel act and the whole mass demeaning for the sake of charity of a mass of ROI women.

Considering the OO have thousands of marches every year, why di the need a new one in a mixed area where there have never been marches before?

Sinn Fein says it met with the Parades Commission today to object to an application by a newly constituted Orange Lodge to parade through what the party said was a mixed area of North Belfast. Speaking after the meeting, Sinn Fein MLA Gerry Kelly said: “We made​ the Parades Commission ​aware that the parade applied for was very contentious as it ran through a mixed residential area and there have already been a significant number of objections from residents. “There has never been an Orange parade in this area and we have received several calls and emails from residents worried ​and angered ​by this development. It is a mixed area and clearly this application would create tensions if approved. “The erection of unionist flags over recent days in Roscoole Park, Mountcoole Park, Kilcoole Park​ and Duncoole Park was clearly ​a ​precursor to this application and an attempt to mark out territory. “That is wrong and only serves to intimidate residents and create flashpoints were there hasn’t​ been any before. “​I urge those involved not to go ahead with their planned march​ out of respect for community relations. The last thing North Belfast needs is another contentious parade.” The News Letter has asked the Orange Order for comment.

Ballix, have you a link for 80% nonsense, if you have it's ten years out of date at least.
Demographics has seen Nationalists move into all parts of North Belfast resulting in unionism reverting to type here.
Loyalists put flegs up.
The OO organise a brand new march to "claim" the area. There have never been Orange marches in the area before.
Unionists defend them.
Just what we need, another parading flashpoint parade created in North Belfast area.
Those days are over
