Friends stage cabaret and walk in France for Missions
KAVANAGH’S Lounge in Roundwood will play host to a cabaret night on Friday October 3 in aid of the African Mission.
Two friends Gertie Murphy of Glenealy and Susan O’Neill of Roundwood are running a number of fundraising events to raise money for the less fortunate in South Africa.
The Cabaret night promises to be a fantastic night of musical entertainment with music provided by the well known Wicklow Man.
The evening will kick off at 8 p.m. and all proceeds from the night will go towards the African Mission.
And the fundraising doesn’t end there.
On November 14 Gertie and Susan will make a trip to France for five days where they plan to walk as many miles as possible in order to raise money.
The previous owner of the Wicklow Heather and Glendalough man Henry Carter will put the two woman up in his hotel in the South of France for five nights.
During their stay the pair will wait on tables in the hotel serving breakfast and dinner and in the afternoons they will done their walking shoes to walk as many French miles as possible.
All money raised will go towards providing shelter, food and medicine for the unfortunate in South Africa.
Sister Teresa Byrne who has been a life-long friend of Gertie’s has been working as a missionary in South Africa.
All money raised from the sponsored walk in France and the cabaret night will go directly to Sister Teresa to build sheltered houses with galvanised sheeting with room for two mattresses and a paraffin stove.
Sponsor cards for the walk are available in the shops in Roundwood and for further information contact Gertie on (0404) 44996 or Susan on (0404) 45276.
