A very successful coffee morning event was held in Enniscorthy last week to raise money for two very worthy causes.

The event was organised by Dee Greenwood at her home at Coroo House, Coolnahorna, to raise money for the Irish Cancer Society and the Daffodil Night Nurses.

The coffee morning was also held in memory of Dee's late parents, TJ and Stasia Bolger.

Raffle prizes were available on the day, sponsored by local businesses.

Commenting on the initiative to this newspaper Dee said it was two-fold because it was a memorial event and also a fundraiser.

Her dad passed away on August 19, 2013, while her mam died on December 29, 2019.

She described night nurses as being 'like angels' and the hospice organisation missed out on its annual Daffodil Day fundraiser this year so Dee decided to do her bit to help.

The coffee morning was held with social distancing guidelines in place and Dee was delighted with the level of support it received.

'The Irish Cancer Society and the daffodil night nurses helped both my parents, who died of cancer,' said Dee.

She said she was delighted to be able to help two very worthy organisations and the support the coffee morning received from friends, neighbours and the general public was very much appreciated.
