MEMBERS OF Slimming World Carlow dug deep recently to raise a terrific €1,000 for a very worthy local charity.

Local Slimming World consultant Mary O’Driscoll organised a bumper raffle for her members at Christmas time in aid of St Clare’s Hospitality Kitchen and was overwhelmed by their generosity.

“My groups raised €1,000 and also donated food, toiletries and different items; they are still bringing in stuff that they have from Christmas, they are so good,” said Mary.

“We are a nation of givers and people know the great work that St Clare’s Hospitality Kitchen do,” she added.

Fr John Dunphy from the kitchen was on hand to receive the cheque and also helped out with the raffle, with lots of lovely prizes up for grabs.

“He came into us and we presented him with the cheque. He was thrilled with it and very grateful to our members,” said Mary
