A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the food collection for Cork Penny Dinners. This time last year, Penny Dinners was serving 1,000 meals per week. By the end of 2015, they were serving 1,800 per week from a dilapidated and sub standard premises. Francis and John Brennan of At Your Service took on the challenge of giving the Penny Dinners premises a much needed makeover and the results were broadcast on RTE 1 on Christmas Day. This episode is still available on RTE Player (here).
Christmas is over but the need is as great as ever, especially in the harsh weather conditions we are experiencing at the moment. Food collection boxes are still in place in Guys & Dolls Hair Salon, Coleman’s Centra and SuperValu. Thanks to Mary Murphy; Mary & John Coleman and staff; Joe Fitzgerald and staff for their continued support. Any other local businesses wishing to donate or get involved can contact 087 6886725.
Thank you for your support, Anna, Stephen & Aida Costello.
