A DVD of the Cork North West MS Branch fundraising concert which was held in Newmarket last summer is now on sale at various outlets around town. This new production which features no less than 11 acts will make a great Christmas stocking filler.
The two-hour DVD includes the following entertainers; Heart to Heart (Sheila Fitzgerald and Mike Sheehan), Meelin Day Care Group, Noreen O'Connor and Students, Mary and Pat Bucke, World Champion Dancer Peig O'Connor, Maura Sheahan as Tina Turner, Jim Barry, Marie Forrest and Timmie O'Connor, Seán Clifford, Matt Lawlee, and Janzo Street Arts.
All profits from the DVD, which is available at various outlets around town, will go to the Cork North West MS Branch. Enquiries to Sheila Fitzgerald at (087) 9724878.
CHRISTMAS DAY SWIM:
Down Syndrome Ireland is dedicated to being the primary source of information and support to people with Down Syndrome, their families and the professional community, working towards an improved quality of life for their members along with a respect and acceptance of people with Down Syndrome as valued members of Irish society.
Down Syndrome Ireland needs to raise €2million annually to maintain existing essential and vital services for their members.
We can do our bit here in Newmarket by taking part in our supporting the Christmas Day Swim in the Island wood at 12.30pm. Sponsorship cards from Mary Stack on (029) 60444 or (087) 9439612.
Newmarket Christmas Ball will be held on Friday, December 7, in Safari's niteclub. There will be a mulled wine reception with light refreshments, lots of great music: Tim Mullane and the Avenues and David John.
We've had a number of hampers donated by local businesses and groups so there will be a draw of the ticket stubs on the night.
All proceeds go towards the town development association. Tickets are €12.50 each and are available in the Post Office and from Committee members.
It's going to be a great night and you'll be supporting your local community so please come along.
