Big boost for steeple fund

Wicklow People - - PICTURES -

A FUNDRAIS­ING cam­paign to cover the cost of vi­tal main­te­nance works on the steeple at St Saviour’s Church, Ark­low is gain­ing mo­men­tum fol­low­ing a very suc­cess­ful 800 draw.

The big draw took place on Fri­day evening in St Saviour’s Church Hall and drew a great crowd, ea­ger to sup­port the fund and see who the lucky win­ners would be.

As just 800 tick­ets were sold, there was a great chance of pick­ing up a prize. The draw raised a grand to­tal of €14,800 which is a good start­ing point for the tower re­pair works which are es­ti­mated to cost in the re­gion of €70,000. Prize win­ners were as fol­lows: Lily Fox­all, Mar­garet Reeves, John Byrne, Phyl­lis Fox­ton, Ai­dan O’Con­nor, Mau­reen Kelly, Olive Nuzum Car­roll, Mar­garet Evans, Paul McDow­ell, Fran­cis Naughton, Veitch Smyth, Mel Smyth and Heather Darby.

Last week also saw a suc­cess­ful cof­fee morn­ing take place at The Mid­way which raised €621. Thanks are ex­tended to John and Noe­line for the use of their premises.
