Tony’s yer only man

Bray People - - Fundraiser In Aid Of Lesotho Project -

BRAY MAN Tony Hall, oth­er­wise known as ‘I’m Yer Man’ build­ing and roof­ing, man­aged to raise a mas­sive ¤2,500 last Mon­day night at Bar­racuda.

He and the restau­rant got to­gether to hold the event in aid of the Le­sotho build­ing project. Tony will be head­ing off to Africa on Oc­to­ber 9 with a team of builders to of­fer their ser­vices to help the needy over there. He said that this is some­thing he al­ways wanted to do and he is de­lighted with the suc­cess of the fund raiser. Over 60 peo­ple bought tick­ets to the event, with a por­tion of each do­nated to the wor­thy cause. There was mu­sic pro­vided on the evening, which din­ers en­joyed as they chat­ted.

Tony also held a raf­fle and was very grate­ful for any prizes do­nated. He said that while he is re­quired to raise ¤5,000 and some of his fam­ily mem­bers are con­tin­ue­ing to col­lect money from peo­ple, any short­fall in the amount will come out of his own pocket.

‘I can’t wait to get over there now,’ he said. ‘I know it will be tough and very hard work but it will also be a won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence.’
