Drumcondra Children Raise Funds for Animal Clinic
Published 14th September 2018
On the Saturday before the Football final in From a Park, a group of local children in Drumcondra decided to spend the day baking cookies, cupcakes and other delicious treats.
On Sunday morning, as the crowds were gathering for the match, they set up their Stall on Iona Road and worked tirelessly throughout the day selling their goodies to the hungry match-goers.
They raised a total of 200 Euro!
On Monday last, they came to our Voluntary Veterinary Clinic at 124a Upper Drumcondra Road, Dublin, opposite the Skylon Hotel and they handed their hard-earned money to the delighted staff. The children had learned of our Clinic when their Labrador/ Retriever “Buddy” was neutered there.
Pictured – left to right – are sisters Mia and Ella Hall (aged 6 and 11 years) and their good friend – Mandeep Maguire (aged 11 years). The girl’s brother Mikey Hall (aged 10 years) was also involved in the marathon baking but was unable to come to the Clinic on Monday. Accepting the Donation is our Veterinary Surgeon Teresa Mendez (Photographer: Roisin Dixon – Veterinary Nurse).
