Ideal Homes kitchen exhibit goes to charity

THE kitchen installed at the B&Q Ideal Homes exhibition has been donated to Barretstown Camp.

The centre provides a therapeutic recreation programme for children with serious illnesses.

Once the Ideal Homes exhibition hosted by Karen Koster has concluded at the RDS, the brand new €15,000 Cooke & Lewis Carisbrooke kitchen on display, including all of the kitchen appliances within it, will be relocated to the Kildare camp. CEO of Barretstown Dee Ahearn said that the charity had planned to refurbish the camp's kitchen.

"By not having to use our own funds for a new kitchen, this amazing donation will give more children affected by serious illness the chance to experience the magic of Barretstown," she said.
