Guest speaker Evelyn Cusack from Met Eireann was the guest of honour at the Bray Soroptimist Club's fundraising lunch last Saturday.

Club president Anny Verwijs welcomed gusts from the business and voluntary organisations in the local community to the event at the Glenview Hotel.

Evelyn spoke to the women about all things meteorological, including the naming of hurricanes.

Members from all over the country joined the Bray women to the fundraising lunch, including the national president Teresa Irwin.

The Bray Club hosted this year's lunch to raise funds for Open Door, Marino School, and the Rett Syndrome Association.

The Rett Syndrome Association of Ireland is an association of parents and families of people affected with Rett Syndrome and other related disorders. Open Door Day Centre on the Vevay Road provides facilities and activities for adults with physical disabilities, and Marino School on Church Road in Bray is for children with disabilities.

The Soroptimist organisation globally aims to transform the lives of women and girls, enabling opportunities through education and empowerment.
