Well what can I say! Iím beyond grateful at how fantastically well the Chari-Tea Coffee Morning in aid of Havinía Laugh went.

A fantastic amount of money was raised and itís still coming in. So far Ä384.50 from raffle, Ä676.94 from the coffee morning donations. So a total of Ä1061.44!!!

Thatís just amazing for a two hour coffee morning! On behalf of myself and the Havinía Laugh Charity Iíd like to say thank you so much to all of you who supported our event.

The Go Fund Me page will remain open until the end of the week.

Also a big list of thank yous:

The Blind Tiger Ė Chris, Sinead, Patricia and Sarah. They were so kind and generous, we ended up taking over the cafe and they didnít take a cent in payment from us for anything including the drinks.

Osta, The Food Centre, East Coast Bakehouse, Cafe Fleur, Kateís Kitchen, Sweet Beat, OíHehirís Bakery, Aj Heraghty, Carrie Hughes, Aine McCarthy, Marie Casserly and someone who bought in the most gorgeous lemon drizzle cake but I didnít see who it was.
