Lunch is served at Black­rock Rugby Club

Bray People - - News -

DIN­ERS from Bray and Shankill were amongst those who at­tended the an­nual Dun Laoghaire Christ­mas day lunch this year at the Black­rock Rugby Club.

Or­gan­iser Mar­garet Brown said that 300 peo­ple were catered for this year, 50 more than 2007. Guests were col­lected from their homes and brought to the venue for the 22nd an­nual lunch.

‘It’s such a lonely time and dif­fi­cult for peo­ple in low fi­nan­cial cir­cum­stances,’ said Mar­garet. ‘It’s a spe­cial event to pro­vide a dig­ni­fied and happy lunch for peo­ple who are alone.’

She said that the oc­ca­sion is about more than just the food, but mak­ing it a happy day for every­one. Santa paid a visit with presents of hats and scarves, af­ter a bit of mu­sic from William Byrne and Des Kelly.
