The members of Mallow Camera Club held a fundraising children’s photo-shoot day in Mourneabbey Community Centre recently. Photographers Michelle La Grue and Fran Byrne came from Dublin to run the teaching workshop with our members and to help with the lighting set-ups and posing. A raffle was also held on the day, followed by a very entertaining auction, with prizes donated by Michelle and Fran and club members.
The final sum raised was €2,000, which was presented to Barry Murphy who accepted the cheque on behalf of the Mercy Hospital Kids and Teens Appeal, which is raising much needed funds for their Children’s Ward and Leukaemia Unit and mobile cancer nurse service for children.
We would like to thank everyone who helped to make this fundraiser so successful.
