Bray People - - Aboutgreystones -

GREY­STONES WOMEN Lor­raine Sut­ton and Ni­cola McCormack have been sup­port­ing the Grey­stones Can­cer Sup­port Cen­tre for a num­ber of years by do­ing the min­i­marathon. They re­cently de­cided to hold a big ‘Disco’ night in the Rugby Club and raised €1,680 for the cause.

Over 100 peo­ple came to en­joy a se­lec­tion of mu­sic, ex­pertly de­liv­ered by DJ Pat Tay­lor, from the 60s right up to to­day. The theme of the evening was ‘Rewind your mind to the swing­ing 60s and dance your way to the present.

‘We would like to thank every­one who came and sup­ported it and to those who gave do­na­tions to this wor­thy cause,’ said Ni­cola. ‘In­clud­ing Vin­cent from the rugby club who was a great help.’

A raf­fle took place on the night, with a to­tal of 12 fan­tas­tic prizes given away by a num­ber of lo­cal busi­nesses. Prizes in­cluded meals, beauty vouch­ers, hol­i­days and more.

The peo­ple who went away couldn’t stay off the dance floor as Pat spun tune af­ter tune, and the feed­back the two or­gan­is­ers have re­ceived has been ex­tremely pos­i­tive.

‘Grey­stones Can­cer Sup­port would like t thank both Lor- raine and Ni­cola and all their sup­port­ers for their very hard work,’ said Kath­leen Kelle­her from the cen­tre. ‘They are a won­der­ful group of young peo­ple who care about oth­ers in their com­mu­nity who need help. Young peo­ple to­day are won­der­ful. Without them, Grey­stones Can­cer Sup­port would not be able to con­tinue its work.’
