THE Mollys pub in Kil­coole raised over €1,000 for Grey­stones Can­cer Sup­port with a Christ­mas tree ap­peal.

They pre­sented the or­gan­i­sa­tion with a cheque for €1,040 last Satur­day in Kil­coole.

Ian Rob­son from the pub had a great fundrais­ing idea.

Peo­ple could do­nate €5 to put a bauble on the pub’s Christ­mas tree, with money raised go­ing to Grey­stones Can­cer Sup­port.

At first The Mollys had just a bare tree. But then, as peo­ple do­nated their €5, the tree be­came full of dec­o­ra­tions.

Mem­bers of Grey­stones Can­cer Sup­port and staff from the pub all gath­ered and there was a big show of ap­pre­ci­a­tion for their ef­forts.

The Mollys has also raised al­most €3,600 for GCS through their ‘Make Sense with Cents’ cam­paign.

Make Sense with Cents was a spe­cial ef­fort by GCS to col­lect pen­nies. They started do­ing this when the 1c and 2c coins went out of cir­cu­la­tion. The Mollys came on board and in­stalled counter col­lec­tion boxes.
