Music and craic at fundraiser
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.’
