IT was a warm day last Sun­day for an­other suc­cess­ful fundrais­ing walk for Balt­in­glass Day Care Cen­tre. The weather didn’t de­ter any of the walk­ers who set off from Fish­ers Cen­tra along a route that was nearly 9km long through the town and the sur­round­ing area along part of the N81 and Red Well’s at 3 p.m. Tea and light re­fresh­ments were also en­joyed by the walk­ers in the cen­tre on the Kil­te­gan Road af­ter the walk was com­pleted.

While there was a smaller turnout then ex­pected, Lor­raine Aspill, PRO for the Balt­in­glass Day Care Cen­tre, said ‘every­one was in great spir­its’.

The Balt­in­glass Day Care Cen­tre or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee thanked every­one who took part in the walk for their sup­port and fundrais­ing ef­forts. The cen­tre re­lies heav­ily on the on­go­ing gen­er­ous sup­port of the lo­cal com­mu­nity in the town and sur­round­ing ar­eas. The com­mit­tee also ex­tended their thanks to vol­un­teers, the Gar­daí and the Irish Red Cross for their as­sis­tance on the day of the fundrais­ing walk.

Mean­while, the next meet­ing of the Day Care Cen­tre or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee will take place on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 14, in Balt­in­glass Day Care Cen­tre at 8.30 p.m. The cen­tre pro­vides day care ser­vices to the wider West Wick­low com­mu­nity. Light re­fresh­ments will also be served af­ter the meet­ing and any­one who is in­ter­ested is en­cour­aged to at­tend on the night.
