A very successful coffee morning was held last Thurday at the community centre to raise funds for Marymount Hospice in Cork. This annual event raised over €700 which will go towards the new hospice centre. As of Sept 18th St.Patricks Marymount has moved to Curraheen near Ballincollig at a cost of €58m half of which will have to come from fundraising efforts such as this “coffee morning”.
A very special word of thanks to Eilis O Brien for organising the event and to her merry band of helpers who baked cakes, supplied sandwiches, jams etc., made tea and coffee and served the many passers-by who ambled in for a cuppa and a chat throughout the day. Also to all who donated money to this very worthwhile cause – thank you.
