Coun­ty­wide cof­fee morn­ing de­liv­ers over €70,000 for wor­thy causes

Bray People - - NEWS -

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Wick­low’s five can­cer sup­port cen­tres and the Wick­low Hospice Foun­da­tion were in Bray on Fri­day for the pre­sen­ta­tion of a to­tal of €71,546.37 at the East Coast FM stu­dios.

This money was raised through the sta­tion’s eighth an­nual Wick­low Wide Cof­fee Morn­ing in April, along with other events in­clud­ing bag packs, a music quiz and the pub­li­ca­tion of the Wick­low Cal­en­dar.

The pre­vi­ous year the fi­nal amount was over €60,000 and in 2014 more than €50,000 so the cam­paign has been grow­ing with each year.

Founder of the event Claire Dar­mody said that this suc­cess is down to the gen­eros­ity of peo­ple who run their own events along­side those in the main venues around the county.

On Fri­day, April 8, eleven main venues and many other satel­lite venues pro­vided tea, cof­fee, cakes and en­ter­tain­ment while the peo­ple of Wick­low sup­ported their vi­tal can­cer sup­port ser­vices. There were venues all over the county, from Bray and Grey­stones to Ark­low, Wick­low, Bless­ing­ton, Aughrim and New­town.

Founder Claire Dar­mody hands over the cheque to rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the can­cer sup­port cen­tres.
