Support the Monster Balbriggan Meals on Wheels Raffle and help them buy a mini busJuly 15, 2019 ADMIN 0
Balbriggan Meals on Wheels was founded in 1975 in order to provide meals for people who were ill, recovering from illness, or for some reason were unable to care for themselves. Balbriggan Meals on Wheels currently provides in the region of 70 – 80 meals per day, with meals delivered to the most vulnerable people in our community; people who are referred to us by Public Health Nurses and Social Workers. It is an essential service and requires all the support it can get; both in monetary terms and by means of the time that our volunteers contribute to keeping the service running.
A crucial part of our service is our Dinner Club, which currently runs three days per week at our Hampton Street base. Our Dinner Club not only provides a meal, but is also an important social outlet for in the region of 25 members.
In order to strengthen our service and maintain and expand our Dinner Club, Balbriggan Meals on Wheels is currently fundraising and seeking sponsorship with the intention of getting our very own minibus. Our own minibus would allow us to better manage the transportation our clients to and from Dinner Club thus expanding this 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.
Thanks to the kindness of thirteen generous sponsors, Balbriggan Meals on Wheels is currently running a Monster Raffle, with a top prize of € 500 cash, donated by Progressive Credit Union. Our Volunteers will be selling tickets over the coming weeks throughout the area. Watch out for them in Supervalu and Millfield in Balbriggan and in Pavilion Shopping Centre in Swords.
