Guide Dogs Christmas Cards now on sale!

Back in early September I put out a mail and a whats app to promote a fundraiser that Breege and I wanted to do to mark our Ruby Wedding Anniversary instead of getting presents that in all fairness at this stage in our lives we didn’t really need. The fundraiser with the go fund me page and donations that came directly to the house made the incredible sum of €4,680 which allowed us to donate €1,560 to each of these charities; Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind, St Francis Hospice Raheny and Balbriggan Cancer Care. We also filled out the revenue form that will allow each charity to get another small donation in lieu of paying tax in January 2021 because the donation was above €250 for each charity. We had a lovely evening in the City North Hotel, Gormanstown, Co Meath about 20 minutes north of Balbriggan on the night of our anniversary, 5th September. All ten of us, 4 grandchildren and 6 adults, stayed over and marked the occasion as a family group in the really difficult world we are now living in.Thanks for your support and friendship, Thank you from Tom and Breege O’Neill.
