On the morning of the 23rd of October in the Portlaoise Parish centre there was a great fundraiser in aid of the homeless charity Pieta House.
A coffee morning, organised by Thomas Lynch, turned out to be a great success with over €500 raised for the cause.
The aim by Thomas Lynch was to raise funds in order to help keep their services going for those who have lost loved ones through suicide so they can avail of counselling and support services.
Pieta House has helped over 40,000 people and established fifteen subsequent centres all over Ireland with over 270 therapists and administration staff.
All funds raised went to Pieta House and all were welcome to the event to keep these services up and running.
Below are photos of Thomas in Athlone presenting the cheque for the amount of €551.20 to Athlone branch manager Mr. Gerard Tiernan.
Fair play Thomas!
