Margaret O’Sullivan representing Cork Simon was greatly impressed with the truly substantial cheque which was presented by Millstreet Vintage Club on Friday night, 22nd Feb. 2019 in the Wallis Arms Hotel as a result of the excellent fundraising event of Coffee, Cars and Chat which was held at the Wallis Arms Hotel and which brought over forty vintage cars on show in The Square that Sunday. The cheque for €1,930.70 was presented by Chairman Donie Lucey who expressed his delight at the generous amount collected for such a praiseworthy cause which was initially suggested by Club Member, Declan Ryan. P.R.O. Bernard Crowley also outlined the very full programme planned for this year by Millstreet Vintage Club. A special radio feature on tonight’s event will be broadcast on Cork Music Station on “Radio Treasures” on Tues. 12th March at 10pm. Here we share a variety of images from tonight’s presentation.

MCS Student Council are running a Christmas Draw in aid of Cork Simon. The school has been supporting this worthy cause for many years and last year raised over €2,500. This year we hope to replicate this success and all students are selling lines and cards, 50c a line, €20 a card. There are fabulous prizes and a selection box for every completed card sold.
The draw will take place on Dec. 19th and you could be in with a chance for yummy prizes or some exquisite pottery pieces (pictured below) created for the occasion. We thank Teachers Barry Fraser and Chris Horan for alerting us to this wonderful annual praiseworthy project. Please support generously! (S.R.)
