Tom and Anne who co-chair the Balbriggan\North County Dublin branch of Guide Dogs for the Blind were delighted to accept on Thursday 6th August a donation of €250 from Katie Seaver from Lusk Co Dublin which were the proceeds of her fundraising. Her dad Richard told us that Katie who will be starting secondary school in Lusk this September is very handy with the sewing machine and likes working it. Her idea was to make face masks during lock down and sell them to family, friends and she even set up a table outside her home in lusk to sell them. For every mask that was sold €2.50 went to Irish guide dogs for the blind a favourite charity of hers and that of her family.However it was finalized who the charity would be when Lusk Local was got in the shop and an article appeared about the sudden passing of Toms guide dog Gatsby.Tom and Ann were telling the Seavers when they called that almost no money was coming into the branch at the moment and that her donation of €250 was likely to be the only money made in the month of August.Thank you Katie for your great donation and we very much appreciate your efforts.To contact and help the Balbriggan\NCD branch of guide dogs Tel 085 7663107, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
