Wicklow People - - NEWS -

THE RE­CENT pre-Christ­mas ladies’ night at the Wood­e­bridge Ho­tel was a re­sound­ing suc­cess, rais­ing €4,200 for Wick­low Hos­pice Foun­da­tion.

The event saw a large num­ber of lo­cal ladies gather for a fes­tive fash­ion and beauty mar­ket and cat­wakj show and evening of en­ter­tain­ment while rais­ing funds for a wor­thy cause.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the Wood­en­bridge Ho­tel and Wick­low Hos­pice met at the ho­tel this week for the cheque pre­sen­ta­tion.

The sum of €4,200 was gath­ered through the silent raf­fle and ticket sales.

In Septem­ber 2019, the Wick­low Hos­pice is due to open its doors, mak­ing it the first hos­pice in County Wick­low.

There will be 15 rooms for in-pa­tients and a hub for home care county-wide, a fa­cil­ity brought to fruition by the peo­ple of County Wick­low.
