Shipquay Hotel and Children in Crossfire celebrate latest fundraising success and announce coffee morning.
Staff from Shipquay Boutique Hotel and Children in Crossfire met this week to announce details of a fundraising coffee morning to be held in the hotel on Friday 1 June, and to hand over a cheque for £600 raised by staff who took part in the recent Colour Run.
Announcing the coffee morning, Eileen Warren from Children in Crossfire said:
“The team at Shipquay Hotel are pulling out all the stops to raise money for Children in Crossfire. Their energy and enthusiasm are delivering great results, with plenty more to come in the months ahead. We thank all the staff who took part in the Colour Run in March for all their efforts on our behalf. We are also delighted to announce details of what will be a very special coffee morning to be held at the Hotel on Friday 1 June, starting at 10:30 am.
“We will be joined at this event by Fr Wilibald Maningi from Tanzania, who supports Children in Crossfire’s work there and is a member of our Board of Trustees. Fr Maningi will be spending two weeks in Ireland, engaging with schools and churches about the impact of our work in Tanzania. He is a truly inspirational figure, so we are encouraging the public to come along to hear more about our work and help us to raise some vital funds.
“Relatively small amounts go very long ways. For example, £20 buys toys for an entire class, which are vital learning tools for pre-school children. £10 buys a child breakfast at school for six months. We are hoping to see many old friends and new faces at this event, which is happening because of the great support and generosity of our friends in Shipquay Hotel.”
