Young Katie raises funds for Balbriggan/North County Dublin branch of Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind

Tom and Anne who co-chair the Balbriggan/North County Dublin branch of Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind were delighted to accept on Thursday 6th August a donation of €250 from Katie Seaver from Lusk, Co. Dublin, which were the proceeds of her fundraising.

Her dad Richard told us that Katie, who will be starting secondary school in Lusk this September, is very handy with the sewing machine and likes working it.  Her idea was to make face masks during lock down and sell them to family, friends and she even set up a table outside her home in Lusk to sell them.  For every mask that was sold €2.50 went to Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind, a favourite charity of hers and that of her family.

Before it was decided who the charity would be, when an article about the sudden passing of Tom’s guide dog Gatsby, Irish Guide Dogs was chosen.

Tom and Anne told the Seavers when they called that almost no money was coming into the branch at the moment and that Katie’s donation of €250 was likely to be the only money received in the month of August.

Thank you Katie for your great donation, Balbriggan/North County Dublin branch of Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind very much appreciate your efforts.
