Elizabeth Quinn, Community Fundraising Executive at LauraLynn commented “We are so grateful to Noel and Peacock’s Steakhouse for the huge support given to LauraLynn from this event.
The funds raised will help us continue to support children living with life-limiting conditions and their families. We recently announced that we are expanding our LauraLynn in the Community services to Ballinasloe to support more children and families in the midlands, west and north west of Ireland, in the comfort of their own home. So, this wonderful donation comes at a great time and is very much appreciated. A huge thanks to all who attended and performed in Swords on the night. It means the world to us.”
