Youthreach Balbriggan Fundraiser for Meals on Wheels

April 4, 2012 0

On Tuesday 21st February, Shrove Tuesday, Students from Youthreach Balbriggan raised €140 for Meals on Wheels Balbriggan through a pancake morning.

As part of the fundraiser students from Youthreach Balbriggan prepared and served pancakes to their fellow Youthreach students in exchange for a donation. The centre also invited staff and students from Fingal Adult Education Service (Co. Dublin VEC) to come along and make a donation to Meals on Wheels in exchange for a pancake and a cup of tea or coffee.

The Meals on Wheells is a vital local service in the Balbriggan area. It is for people who for one reason or another are unable to cook for themselves. The service receives funding from the HSE for the part-time co-ordinator and a portion of the cost of meals but they have to raise the balance of funding themselves through fundraising

The students and staff at the centre are delighted with the money they raised for this charity and are grateful to all those who donated!
