The Lighthouse is helping to celebrate the charity Christian Aid’s 70th Birthday this week. The world renowned charity has been working to assist the poor and the needy globally for the past 70 years. Poverty continues to blight the world’s poorest nations alongside other major issues such as human trafficking, suppression of women’s rights and major diseases such as Malaria and HIV. Christian Aid continues to work hard to bring to an end to poverty with the support of Church groups across Ireland.
Lighthouse spokesperson for the event, Suzie Gallagher, explained that on Saturday 16th May The Lighthouse will hold a cake sale at Coleman’s Centra Millstreet. “We intend to sell 70 individual cakes with a personal message of thanks to celebrate and support the continued work of Christian Aid. Each cake sold will have a number and card of thanks. We are hoping to raise a substantial amount for this worthwhile cause and highlight the great work that the charity is constantly doing. We would like to thanks Colesman’s for allowing us to highlight this great charity in Millstreet.
The Cake Stand will be located outside Coleman’s Centra from 10.30am on Saturday 16 May. A total of funds raised following the event will be displayed in the widow of The Lighthouse preceding the event. For further information please contact; Suzie Gallagher on 086 152 5374.
