There was great delight at the AGM of Balbriggan Meals on Wheels on Thursday 7th November at the announcement that Progressive Credit Union has very generously donated €20,000 towards the purchase of a minibus by the organisation. Brian Howard, Marketing & Development Officer attended the meeting and presented the cheque to members of Balbriggan Meals on Wheels.
It was also announced that a HSE Community and Voluntary Supports Grant has just been sanctioned for a further €20,000 towards the minibus.
This is the culmination of a year of fundraising, including the Monster Raffle held in August.
Balbriggan Meals on Wheels now looks forward to purchasing a minibus. This new minibus will enable greater management of the transportation our clients to and from Dinner Club thus expanding the service whilst additionally being able to offer our clients more trips and days out, for example visits to local amenities, shopping trips, theatre and cinema trips etc.
