Monster fashion show
THERE will be a monster fashion show in the Arklow Bay on October 18 in aid of the Bring Them Home campaign.
Former Bank of Ireland Arklow branch manager Saranna Condell said the idea behind the fundraiser was simple.
'Bank of Ireland asked its employees to support whatever initiatives were going on in their area around The Gathering. I was Manager in Arklow at the time and we decided that, although The Gathering was a good idea, only people who could afford to come home, could come home. So we decided we would raise enough money to bring a family home and Bank of Ireland has been very generous in helping us with this and so w hope now to bring two families home.'
Tickets for the fashion show are selling at just €10 and in sale in various shops around the town including The Arklow Bay, Office Supplies and BOI Arklow.
People are now being asked to nominate families to come home for Christmas. Send the details of your nominated family, your own contact details to Box Number AK590, Wicklow People, The Long Hall, Old Chapel Ground, Arklow before October 14.
