Se­ries of sales now com­pleted

Bray People - - St David’s Car Boot Sale -

THIS YEAR’S se­ries of car boot sales at St. David’s has come to a close, with or­gan­is­ers say­ing that it has been a won­der­fully suc­cess­ful fundrais­ing ven­ture for the school, rais­ing ¤9,680.

The next sea­son will re­sume on March 15 and run ev­ery sec­ond week un­til the end of Septem­ber.

All pro­ceeds from the sales are used by the school to up­grade and im­prove the fa­cil­i­ties for the stu­dents at­tend­ing.

‘A huge thank you to all the sell­ers and buy­ers who have sup­ported us week af­ter week, year af­ter year,’ said a spokesman. ‘ Without their sup­port there could be no sales and we look for­ward to meet­ing them all again next year.’

Spe­cial thanks went to the or­gan­is­ing group, Phil Ker­ri­gan and Mary Fin­negan, who have been run­ning the sales to­gether for the past 16 years.

‘They have been an amaz­ing team and have worked tire­lessly to­gether ev­ery year, mak­ing sure all runs smoothly. It is a huge work­load and yearly com­mit­ment to put up and take down signs, ad­ver­tise fly­ers and be there to open the gates early in the morn­ing.’

The pair is al­ways there for the day tak­ing ad­mis­sion fees, park­ing cars, and giv­ing out fly­ers be­fore clean­ing and lock­ing up again.

Phil and Mary both be­came fundrais­ers for St. David’s many years ago when their chil­dren went to the school and long af­ter their youngest chil­dren left school, they still con­tinue to run the sales.

A small group of helpers joined their num­ber this year. ‘They would like to say a heart­felt thanks to all those new faces who gave up a few hours on Sun­days through­out the year.’
