The Thurles Rotary Club are running a Coffee Morning and Cake Sale this Sunday, Oct. 30th, on the path outside De Burca’s Pub (and in the pub itself) on Cathedral Street. The club ran a similar event last March and it was very successful and well received.
The beneficiary of this upcoming Cake Sale will be Rehab Care who as many people will be aware, are building a new Residential and Day Care Centre at Stradavoher, next to the Government offices.
This facility is for persons with autism and intellectual disabilities and Rehab Care need to raise 1m Euro over the course of the next few years to fully fund its completion. Rehab employ over 40 people in the Thurles area alone and Rotary want to make their presence known and help them raise funds to bring them a little closer to their target. They are going to make this particular October Cake Sale an annual event for Rehab Care.
“ We really need the public to be informed and start baking as the biggest problem we had back in March was running out of food!! Good complaint I guess! We would invite people to bake buns, biscuits,cakes, tarts, breads or anything they prefer and deliver them to Gleeson’s Auctioneers on Saturday next between 5:00 -6:00pm. Alternatively, items can be brought along on Sunday morning, preferably before 10am, to the stalls outside de Burca’s public house,” Rotary President Jonathan Gleeson told The Tipperary Star.
So, get along to Cathedral Street on Sunday morning and pick up something nice for lunch. Not only will you be bolstering your larder, you’ll also be supporting a very good cause indeed.
