“To Emma with love” – Final fundraiser for Emma Lacey
Dear friends of Emma,
You are probably aware that Emma Lacey, a past pupil of Loreto Secondary School is bravely journeying through a tough time in her life. There has been an outpouring of support from the whole community in Clonmel and we would like to invite you to join us in the final fundraiser - a shopping extravaganza of fashionable clothing (age 13-25yrs) at Clonmel Showgrounds.
We are asking you, her peers, to show your solidarity with Emma and support this venture.
The idea is that you will donate your most-loved garment. This must be in pristine condition and something that is meaningful to you. We ask that you carefully select this clothes item – honouring Emma with your choice.
Letters have been distributed with a heart on a ribbon attached. We would like you to write your name on the heart and attach it to the hanger that your garment is displayed on. We are also kindly supported by ‘ River Island and ‘New Look’ and their retail outlets in Clonmel will have the letter and tags for anyone who wants to donate items to the cause.
There will be a collection point in Loreto School and in Presentation Secondary School .
Mattie Mc Grath’s constituency office, Clonmel (round the corner from Martin’s Fruit and Veg shop) has also offered to act as a collection point.
Alternatively, one of the people listed below can be contacted if you need your item to be collected from your home.
Donations must be received by Wednesday 22nd May.
THE DONATED CLOTHES WILL BE FOR SALE IN A POP UP SHOP IN THE SHOW GROUNDS SHOPPING CENTRE ON SATURDAY 25TH OF MAY from 12pm. A DAY NOT TO BE MISSED AS THERE WILL BE BARGAINS ‘GO LEOR’ FOR YOU.
