Style tips and cooking demo for Rapid Response
Up to 400 people are expected to attend an evening of lifestyle tips, nutrition advice, and cooking demos from a line-up of high-profile experts — and get a goodie-bag into the bargain — next month.
It’s all in aid of the West Cork Rapid Response service.
Well-known psychologist Shane Martin, dietitian Paula Mee, and Olympic athlete and cookbook author Derval O’Rourke are among those offering tips and advice during a special Health and Wellbeing event from 7pm on Friday, October 12, at the Munster Arms Hotel in Bandon, which will be presented by broadcaster Patricia Messinger.
All proceeds of the night, sponsored by the National Dairy Council and Bandon Coop, will go to the renowned emergency medical service, West Cork Rapid Response.
Psychologist Shane Martin will provide five tips to help members of his audience embrace a better quality of life, dietitian Paul Mee will explore common myths about food, and Derval O’Rourke, author of and columnist with the will give a cookery demonstration.
“We will also be giving out and a some very good free gift bags at the event,” revealed one of the organisers, Kate Crowley, who added that there was already great interest in the event from throughout the Co Cork region.
