Our thanks to TESCO Merrion Shopping Centre for again nominating St. Vincent’s under their Community Fund scheme. Breast Cancer services in St. Vincent’s were nominated as one of their chosen charities in April.
Helen Parsons (pictured below) on behalf of TESCO Merrion presented €546.13 for this most worthy cause.
We are really grateful for the continued support of TESCO’s. This award is the third we have received for specific causes in the hospital from their Community Fund.
Robbie Greene and the Bray City Rollers, in partnership with Christine Kearney (well known to supporters of St. Vincent’s) organised an exciting fundraising evening on Friday 26th June last in the Bray Head Fishing & Social Club.
Including the raffle, the function contributed a fantastic €1,712 to Breast Cancer research here in St. Vincent’s.
We have previously highlighted a number of projects that have been enabled by the consistent fundraising of Christine, her family and friends. They again rallied around providing catering on the night. They were also supported by many sponsors. We are grateful to one and all.
Robbie Greene has been a performer in Ireland and internationally for over forty years and we really appreciate him and the Bray City Rollers giving their time for such a worthy cause. The photographs below capture some of the spirit of the evening.
