A coffee morning was held in Fethard on Sea recently as part of an ambitious fundraiser to amass €100,000 for three charities.

David Rea (57), who lives in the Fethard on Sea area, is among a group of family members raising money for the Irish Cancer Society, The Alzheimer Society Of Ireland and The Organisation Of National Ex - Service Personnel (ONE) by climbing the highest summit in each province in July.

Inspired to do the fundraiser with family and friends following his niece being diagnosed with cancer, aged 30, David said his godchild had always wanted to take up hiking and is now joining him with friends on the Four Peaks.

Sarah Foley hosted a tea and coffee morning at Baginbun Lodge where a large sum was raised through donations – including to a raffle.

“A huge thanks to Jane for hosting and providing all teas, coffees and pastries. It was a fab venue and the sun was shining. Also a huge thanks to Jo O'Connor from Scurri who donated €500 for our three charities. And finally a huge thank you to everyone who came down to support us and buy raffle tickets. We really do appreciate it!!!” said Sarah. 

A former member of the Irish Army, David said he wanted to give something back to ONE veterans and their families.

He will climb Lugnaquilla on July 1, followed by Donard in Northern Ireland on the same day. Next up is Mweelrea in Mayo, followed by Carrauntoohill is next up on July 3.

People can support David’s fundraiser on the Four Peaks Challenge GoFundMe page. Around €7,600 has been raised to date.
