Havin’ a coffee, havin’ a chat, havin’ a laugh

Well what can I say! I’m beyond grateful at how fantastically well the Chari-Tea Coffee Morning in aid of Havin’aLaugh went.

A fantastic amount of money was raised and it’s still coming in. So far €384.50 from raffle, €676.94 from the coffee morning donations. So a total of €1061.44!!! That’s just amazing for a two hour coffee morning! On behalf of myself and the Havin’aLaugh Charity I’d 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 – Chris, Sinead, Patricia and Sarah. They were so kind and generous, we ended up taking over the cafe and they didn’t take a cent in payment from us for anything including the drinks.

Osta, The Food Centre, East Coast Bakehouse, Cafe Fleur, Kate’s Kitchen, Sweet Beat, O’Hehir’s Bakery, Aj Heraghty, Carrie Hughes, Aine McCarthy, Marie Casserly and someone who bought in the most gorgeous lemon drizzle cake but I didn’t see who it was. Thank you so much for donating such gorgeous food!
