A total of €166.38 was raised for the Bernardos Help Children Appeal after a successful tea day was held in Ballaghadereen by local fund raiser Eugene O’Connor.
Eugene is known throughout Co. Roscommon for his charity work and was rewarded for his efforts in 2001 for his feeding of the homeless project, when he received an award from President Mary McAleese.
Friday’s event began at 10.30am with the final cup of tea served at 7.30 and further fundraising projects are already in the pipeline.
