Mu­sic and craic at fundraiser

Bray People - - PICTURES -

THE res­i­dents of Earlsbrook House Nurs­ing Care Home had their danc­ing shoes on re­cently at a fundrais­ing gar­den party.

So­cial care leader Luke Cough­lan said the day was a great suc­cess with many of the res­i­dents’ fam­ily and friends join­ing in the fun.

The staff at Earlsbrook House, which is lo­cated on the Meath Road, de­cided to use the an­nual gar­den party as an op­por­tu­nity to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Café in Bray.

‘It was a great day in gen­eral’, said Luke. ‘A lot of friends and fam­ily came and we are hope­ful that we raised a nice sum for the Alzheimer’s Café, which does won­der­ful work in the com­mu­nity. We do a lot of fundrais­ing for var­i­ous char­i­ties through­out the year and for the gar­den party we wanted to give some­thing back to the Alzheimer’s Café.

‘ The weather on the day wasn’t too bad but we de­cided to move the fes­tiv­i­ties in­side be­cause of the mu­si­cal equip­ment. In the end it worked out bet­ter re­ally be­cause all the res­i­dents were up danc­ing to the mu­sic.

‘We’ve re­ceived lots of let­ters and emails from peo­ple who were at the party with rel­a­tives say­ing they re­ally en­joyed the day.’
