DRINKERS in Bray will have to do with­out their free Christ­mas hand-outs again this year to make way for a large do­na­tion to char­ity.

For lo­cal publi­cans con­tin­ued with the step taken last year to sac­ri­fice the free Christ­mas drinks to cus­tomers for a hefty con­tri­bu­tion to three char­i­ties.

The do­na­tions from pubs came to a to­tal of £6,000.

The Bray com­mit­tee for St Cather­ine’s School for Men­tally Hand­i­capped re­ceived £2,500, the same amount went to the Open Door Cen­tre for hand­i­capped adults while the Christ Church restora­tion fund re­ceived £1,000.

The cheques were passed over to the char­i­ties at a spe­cial func­tion at the Old­court Lounge on tues­day night and ex­pres­sions of thanks for­warded to the publi­cans and cus­tomers.
