St Patrick's Day Parade committee donates €8,000 to Blessington Rescue Boat fund
The proceeds of the successful Blessington St Patrick's Day parade were presented to a worthy local cause recently.
The Blessington Rescue Boat voluntary group was chosen as this year's charity of choice and the members were delighted to accept an €8,000 donation.
Frances Crampton and Maria McGlenn of the St Patrick's Day parade committee were joined by local volunteers in recent days to present a cheque to Blessington Rescue Boat members.
The group, which had been in operation for 11 years, recently sought to upgrade their vessel, which is now 20 years old.
They thanked the parade committee for their support and generous donation which will help to upgrade their vessel.
