NEWTOWN Juniors received a great response to their first Spinathon in aid of Pieta House held last Saturday outside Dunne Stores in Newtownmoutnkennedy.

There was even a surprise visit from none other than Mrs Brown herself, aka John Latchford.

38 spinners took part, with some of them spinning twice, and a whopping €2,500 was raised.

The Club would like to say a massive thank you to everyone that donated and to thank all the spinners, as well as Club Chairperson Pauline Martin who was the driving force behind this fundraiser.
