Char­ity cheques from gar­daí and bus driv­ers

Bray People - - NEWS - JANE CASEY

THROUGH Novem­ber, em­ploy­ees of Dublin Bus and Wick­low gar­daí put to­gether a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties such as head-shav­ing, mous­tache-grow­ing, wax­ing and weight loss in or­der to raise money for var­i­ous de­serv­ing char­i­ties across Wick­low.

Many brave gar­daí and Dublin Bus driv­ers put them­selves through in­sane ac­tiv­i­ties all in the name of char­ity. One brave Garda mem­ber even trav­elled to Africa and climbed the fourth high­est moun­tain in the world, Mount Kil­i­man­jaro, to raise money.

In to­tal, €19,000 was raised and split be­tween wor­thy or­gan­i­sa­tions across Wick­low.

Last Thurs­day in the Martello, cheques were pre­sented to Wick­low Hospice Foun­da­tion and Bray Cancer Sup­port Cen­tre, as well as Grey­stones, Wick­low, Ark­low and Rath­drum cancer sup­port groups.

Garda mem­bers and Dublin Bus driv­ers would like to thank all the lo­cal busi­nesses who made do­na­tions, and would like to ac­knowl­edge all the peo­ple who took part in the ac­tiv­i­ties.

At the cheque pre­sen­ta­tion.
