A ‘grand’ day for the Elche Children’s Home


JUST over €1,000 was raised at another great afternoon of fun and entertainment all in aid of the Elche Children’s Home.

Under the very capable hosting of the witty Ricky Neil from Sunshine FM, the Citrus Centre was the venue that saw Nigel Burchill as Elvis, Johnny Lea, Cindy Fitzpatrick, and of course Mr Charity himself Stevie Spit.  Ann Bartlett splendidly organised a major raffle and both kids and adults’ Tombola.

The representatives of the Elche Children’s Home – Jenny and Roger – want to take this opportunity of thanking everyone involved during the afternoon – especially the entertainers that gave their time for free – but would like a special mention for Lynn and the staff of the Eden Restaurant, Ann and John Bartlett at Johnson’s Supermarket and last but by no means least Jane and Dave at the Friendly Bar who invited children from Elche Children’s Care Home to attend the event and supplied them with most welcome pizza.

The final figure raised was a fantastic €1,134.
