Fundraiser - Alzheimer’s Unit

A fantastic night was had by all who attended the wonderful concert in St. Joseph’s Centre, Leitrim Village on Sunday 24th February. This was the first major fundraiser to be held in the Centre and what an event it turned out to be. A great night of song, music and fun were provided by our own Mick Blake from the village with star performances from our neighbours Eleanor Shanley and Charlie McGettigan – who made it all possible by volunteering their time and talents. All proceeds from the night go to the Alzheimer’s Unit in St. Patrick’s Hospital and so far the figure has exceeded all expectations, with funds still coming in.

Thanks to all who helped out and contributed to the success of the event, all who travelled long and short distances, with a big thank-you to our friends from St. Patrick’s Hospital who joined us on the night. Special thanks to the St. Joseph’s Centre Committee, Seamus Regan and Seamus Gibbons and our MC - Noel Farrell, our ticket sellers, The Bush Hotel, The Landmark Hotel, Drumsna Garden Centre, Cara Pharmacy, Drumshanbo, and Aura Health Centre who contributed raffle prizes and to all who donated spot prizes on the night.
