Senator hosts coffee morning in aid of local cancer support group
SENATOR Lorraine Clifford Lee’s new constituency office in Balbriggan was put to good use recently when the Fingal senator hosted a coffee morning in aid of local chairty, the Balbriggan Cancer Support Group.
Senator Clifford Lee said the group provide a ‘great service’ and while they are based in Balbriggan, their reach extends across the whole of Fingal.
‘They do not get any funding at all from the Government and have to fundraise so we decided to host this coffee morning for them,’ Senator Clifford Lee told the Fingal Independent.
The senator welcomed representative of the charity, Sheila Byrne to the office as well as her party colleagues Lisa Chambers TD and Thomas Byrne TD.
Senator Clifford Lee said there was a ‘good discussion around cancer services in the region, on the day’ and she noted that there the kind of service the group provides, offering counselling and support to cancer sufferers and their families was not available in the north county before the charity was founded.
