Disco fever as dancers bop for Cancer support
FUNDRAISER €1,680 MADE FROM RUGBY CLUB NIGHT OUT
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.’
