GOREY’S Crafty Ladies have gotten creative for a very special cause, having organised a Christmas raffle for the RNLI.
Francis Dunbar of the group said there’s a big effort on now, with just 10 days remaining before the big raffle that will take place outside Altura Credit Union on Saturday afternoon, December 4.
“There are 12 of us in the sewing group and we’re together five years. We meet up every week to share ideas about sewing and have a get-together. We did fundraisers before for Gorey Youth Needs and NWSPCA, but they were over two years ago now due to the pandemic.
“All our sewing material is ready to go, and the support has been fantastic so far. Due to Covid, there are less people around buying tickets, so we really need all the support we can get before the first weekend in December. We’ll be selling tickets outside Altura on Friday, December 3, and Saturday, December 4.”
Francis thanked Gorey Print for sponsoring the tickets, which are available in Courtown at the post office, Taravie Hotel and RNLI shop, Ballymoney’s Tara Vale, Orphan Girl and Hugh’s shop, as well as Gorey’s Halford’s hair studio, Smith Byrne Solutions and His and Hers.
