Over £14,000 has been raised for the Air Ambulance Northern Ireland charity following a sheep sale on Tuesday evening.
The sheep sale was organised by Peter Collum from Letterbreen who was injured in an accident on his farm. 
21-year-old Peter was flipped off his quad which landed on top of him in May of this year and fractured his T9 vertebrae. When he was treated in hospital, doctors advised Peter that he was millimetres away from being paralysed. 
Peter did not need the Air Ambulance but recognises how vital the service is to the local community.
Peter was “overwhelmed with the turnout” for the charity sheep sale at the Ulster Farmers Mart in Enniskillen.
Speaking following the event, Peter said: “When I first thought of the idea, I did not imagine it would get such a great response.
“I cannot thank everyone enough for the support and generosity from all who donated sheep, from the local businesses for vouchers for the auction and a lovely Christmas cake that was kindly given,” he said.
Peter is grateful to all of those who participated and added: “A thanks to all the local farmers in the community who bought at the sale and those who gave donations.”
Peter is in great appreciation of all of those who made the sale a success, he added: “I would like to thank the Ulster Farmers Mart for holding the event and to all of the staff including canteen staff for all of the help and support.”
