Thank You from Pauline & Noel’s Coffee Morning

Despite having to cancel the actual coffee morning at relatively short notice people were very generous with donations. Here’s a message from Pauline & Noel

A huge thank you to everyone who supported the recent coffee morning event for Cahercalla Hospice in Shyan, through your incredible generosity €1386 was raised and gratefully received.

Aren’t we lucky to live in a community so willing to help others. Hopefully we’ll be back next year with a table full of cakes and goodies.
