DECADE OF DOING GOOD
WALKERS were out in force recently as the 10th annual sponsored event in aid of West Wicklow Day Care Centre at Baltinglass Hospital took place.
The walk followed a route from Fisher’s Centra to the hospital where refreshments were served afterwards. Sponsorship cards are still being collected and all funds will be donated to the centre.
The Daycare Centre began in 1980 as a means of bringing together isolated elderly residents from around West Wicklow. Funds are used to provide amenities and facilities for their needs The care needs of some elderly people are now more complex and attendance at the centre helps them to remain in their homes while having them the opportunity to socialise and have their care needs met while their carers have some respite. Fund raising continues throughout the year and the next event will be a Rideout with the Shillalagh Hunt at Humewood Castle and Fort Granite on Sunday, October 3. This will be in aid of both the Daycare Centre and local charities in Kiltegan.
