WATCH: Anonymous donor gives £33,000 to a Derry charity and helps a dream come true

A mystery donor has given £33,000 to a Derry charity so they could buy a bus.

The local woman, who only handed over the money on condition that she remained anonymous, gave the amazing donation to the Playtrail organisation which provides a range of support services for young people with special needs.

As a result of the donation, the charity has been able to buy their own bus.

Having their own transport has transformed how the Playtrail operates.

A short film about the story of this amazing donation has been made by the local Headliners group.

Headliners run journalism programmes to help young people tell their own stories.
