Baldoyle and District Men’s Shed teamed up with transition year students from St. Mary’s secondary school to run a coffee morning fundraiser for St. Francis Hospice in Raheny.

Bewley’s was celebrating 30 years of coffee morning events for hospice and Baldoyle Community Hall was a haven of delicious baked goods and hot Bewley’s coffee, despite a dark and rainy morning. The event raised a total of €1,100 for the worthy cause. 

“We’ve had great fun organising this event”, said Michael Phelan, chairperson of the Baldoyle and District Men’s Shed. 

“This is the first time we’ve worked with students from St. Mary’s and it’s been a very positive experiment in intergenerational work. Our thanks to all who have supported the event and especially those that brought cake.” 

The Baldoyle and District Men’s Shed meet every Thursday between 10am and 12pm in the Baldoyle Community Hall and they welcome new members.
