€5,000 raised for Se­nior Cit­i­zens

Bray People - - News -

AL­MOST €5000 was col­lected re­cently through­out Avoca, Conary and Rath­drum through the sup­port of lo­cal busi­ness, mem­bers of the pub­lic and the Avoca Re­cy­cling Cen­tre, in aid of Se­nior Cit­i­zens.

With a num­ber of char­ity buck­ets sta­tioned across the re­gion and an ac­count at the lo­cal Credit Union there was no ex­cuse not to sup­port the fund which saw money do­nated to pay for a Christ­mas party for the Se­nior Cit­i­zens.

With the sup­port of Mylie and his team at the Avoca Re­cy­cling Cen­tre, who run a sec­ond hand book store the scheme was run with the help of Wick­low County Coun­cil and or­gan­is­ers say that without their hard work such an im­pres­sive sum could not have been raised.

The Se­nior Cit­i­zens was this year’s lo­cal char­ity se­lected by the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee to ben­e­fit from the project which sees do­na­tions ac­cepted in ex­change for books col­lected at the Re­cy­cling Cen­tre.
