Coffee morning to help Lakers
THE Martello held a coffee morning recently to raise funds for Lakers following a fire which destroyed their premises and fleet of buses.
The seafront pub decided to support Lakers, which is a sports and recreation club for adults and children with an intellectual disability.
The whole community has rallied around Lakers since the fire displaced the club and there was a great turnout at the Martello for what was a very enjoyable local event. There was a raffle along with cups of tea and coffee, and homemade scones and a total of approximately €900 raised on the day.
A spokesperson for Lakers said that there was a lovely atmosphere on the day. They were delighted with such an excellent result from a Sunday morning.
She said that there was a great turnout, with people both linked to Lakers, and others who just happened to be passing by.
There were delicious mince pies donated by Crana bakery and others made cakes to bring along on the day.
There has been a huge outpouring of good will towards Lakers and the spokesperson said that they have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the community.
