Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

The fu­ture of Bal­ly­more Church looks a lot brighter af­ter a fun run in aid of its re­pairs raised more than €3,000.

A crowd of 70 adults, and just as many kids, gath­ered in the grounds of Bal­ly­more Church on Sun­day af­ter­noon for the third an­nual 5K/9K run, or walk. Chil­dren took part on bikes and scoot­ers, with many tak­ing part along­side adults who were run­ning the trail.

Com­mit­tee mem­ber Sylvia Power said the crowd was the big­gest they have ever witnessed and are thrilled with the money raised which will go to­wards the up­keep of the lo­cal church.

‘This is our yearly fundraiser for the church and it is the im­por­tant one for us,’ said Sylvia.

Re­fresh­ments were served af­ter­wards on the grounds of Bal­ly­more Church.

A raf­fle was held lead­ing up to the event and the win­ners were as fol­lows: 1, Hazel Ryn­hart; 2, Ge­orgina Dea­con; 3, Alf Power; 4, Robyn Ryn­hart. Sylvia gave a heart­felt thank you to par­tic­i­pants; spon­sors; and to those who do­nated.
