Balbriggan Golf Club continued its long tradition of running the annual Captains Charity Event this year, the event as always received great support from members and friends. Balbriggan Meals on Wheels was the charity selected by Club Captains Breegen Roche and Barry McKenna as the recipient of the proceeds of this year’s event which raised €4,435

The Captains said “they were delighted to support the incredibly important service that Balbriggan Meals on Wheels provides to the community of Balbriggan, it’s a privilege to be able to support the wonderful work of Helen and her team of volunteers and drivers, the passion with which they provide their service improves the lives and well being of the wider community of Balbriggan, for which we and the members of Balbriggan Golf Club are truly grateful”.

Balbriggan Meals on Wheels provides 90 hot meals and 60 Cold meals each day providing dinner 6 days a week to the community they serve. This vital resource receives €1.00 from the HSE for each meal they prepare the rest of the funds they have to raise themselves. Helen said they expect the service to get even busier with the possibility of going to a stage 5 lockdown and added the funds raised by Balbriggan Golf Club would help them enormously to continue this vital community service.
