On Saturday 18th June, Balbriggan Meals on Wheels held a get together to celebrate the launch of their newly developed Outdoor Area.
The occasion was also used to dedicate the new Outdoor Area to Eoghan ó Ceallacháin, in recognition of his tireless work over the years, not only for Balbriggan Meals on Wheels, but also for the whole Balbriggan community. Balbriggan Meals on Wheels would like to acknowledge Dublin Rural Leader for grant funding of €24,063.75 towards this project. They are also grateful to their Fundraising Committee and those who supported them in raising the balance of €10,000. Balbriggan Meals on Wheels would also like to thank Christopher White for the donation of flowers and shrubs. The support of St Peter & Paul’s Parish is also acknowledged.The Outdoor Area is a great additional space for those who use the services of Balbriggan Meals on Wheels, Order of Malta and many other community groups. It will be a space where people can sit outside and have a cup of tea, a chat and enjoy the art work provided by Youthreach, Foroige and Fingal Lighthouse Art Group. It is also used as a lovely area for serving teas & coffees at the Pop-up-Shop, currently hosted by Balbriggan Meals on Wheels on Friday mornings. All in all the Outdoor Area is a very beautiful space. Balbriggan Meals on Wheels prepare and deliver meals to the most vulnerable people in the local community who for whatever reason are unable to provide meals for themselves; they are people who are referred by Public Health Nurses and Social Workers. Balbriggan Meals on Wheels operates six days per week and currently provides in the region of 80-100 meals per day in the wider Balbriggan Community. They also host a Dinner Club three days per week which provides a meal and an important social outlet to members.
