THERE was a full-house present at Blainroe Golf Club’s clubhouse as part of the Bewley’s Big Coffee Morning Social for Wicklow Hospice.
Most of the Bewley’s Big Coffee Morning Social events were due to take place on Thursday but Miriam McGrath of Wicklow Hospice decided to hold her fundraiser at Blainroe Golf Club the Friday beforehand.
Members of Wicklow Rotary Club presented Miriam with a cheque for €500 which was kindly donated by the
Blackrock Clinic. A raffle was also held on the day, with
up to 15 great prizes to be won. With monies still coming in, it looks like Miriam’s coffee morning will reach the €3,000
Miriam said; “The weather was awful on the day but thankfully it didn’t impact on the attendance. We had a full-house and it was great to see so many people back in the clubhouse again. I also have to thank the lady members of the golf club who baked all the delicious cakes and buns we had for sale. It was a very successful event and we even had guests from Killiney and Carickmines come down for the coffee morning and they both signed up to be volunteers for Wicklow Hospice.”
