Cof­fee morn­ing to help Lak­ers

Bray People - - NEWS -

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.
