Sunbeam House Services (in particular Martin O’Rourke) and Ann Walker (The Orchard Café) organised a really successful coffee morning in collaboration with East Coast Radio on Friday the 17th of April.
There was a fantastic atmosphere in this beautiful setting with everyone sitting outside catching up with friends and family. Ger Ryan came to have coffee with us, Ger is a well known actress who has worked in Family (BBC), The Commitments, The Van, Intermission and many more. Shanice Juste, The All Ireland women’s boxing champion 65kg came for coffee and many photographs and local DJ Jimmy Reid was our compere for the morning.
We were delighted with the support we received from Martin Lynch who provided a free taxi service from Arklow to The Ballyraine Campus and An Cisean Aran, an Arkow bakery who donated some lovely cakes. Some students from Gael scoil Arklow, the Men’s Shed with many more locals to enjoy a nice cuppa and some good company for a Great Cause. We raised €775 over the three hour coffee morning, what a result!
A big Thank you to all who supported a Fantastic cause and made a Great Day.
