A bloom­ing great night

Bray People - - Martin Codyre Fundraiser -

THE CAM­PAIGN con­tin­ues to raise funds for Bray man Martin Codyre, who is paral­ysed from the chest down af­ter fall­ing whilst danc­ing at a friend’s wed­ding last Au­gust.

His mother Joan is a mem­ber of Bray Flower club and her friends there ral­lied round last Fri­day night at the Lit­tle Flower Hall, rais­ing more than €10,000 for the equip­ment he will need to re­build his life.

There were five demon­stra­tors who used the flow­ers do­nated from a range of flower busi­nesses to cre­ated beau­ti­ful bou­quets that were late raf­fled to the au­di­ence.

The venue was brim­ming with peo­ple, com­ing very close to the full ca­pac­ity of 260. Martin came along and spoke to the women, jok­ing that he would have ar­rived ear­lier if he’d known there would be so many women present.

A spokes­woman said that New­court Road woman Joan was very touched by the sup­port of the club. ‘The at­mos­phere was amaz­ing,’ said mem­ber Mon­ica Coade. ‘I have been to loads of demon­stra­tions but never any­thing with such feel­ings of love and kind­ness.’
