Bray People - - NEWS -

BRAY GIRL Hay­ley Gib­bons held a char­ity gig in Piz­zas ‘n' Cream last Thurs­day. Hay­ley plans on trav­el­ling to the Spe­cial Olympics in June to vol­un­teer, and wanted to raise money for the event.

On the night, at­ten­dees were asked to do­nate €5 to­wards the cause. Lo­cal favourites Wyvern Lingo took to the stage to per­form acous­ti­cally for the lis­ten­ers and played a set of orig­i­nal ma­te­rial and a few cov­ers.

‘The place was filled, it was so great to see so many peo­ple to come out and sup­port Hay­ley on the night,' said Caoimhe Barry, per­cus­sion­ist and vo­cal­ist for Wyvern Lingo. ‘ We had such a great time. We have been play­ing a lot of gigs lately, but this was very chilled out and it was for such a good cause, so we couldn't say no! Piz­zas ‘n' Cream kindly handed out free pizza to ev­ery­one who at­tended,' she added.

The money Hay­ley raised on the night will be do­nated to the Spe­cial Olympics and she her­self will be vol­un­teer­ing for the events this com­ing June.
