2017 - Happy things happen at the North Thursday Club
The Thursday Club organised by ESRA North seems to have become the place where happy things happen.This Thursday, the Chair of ESRA North, welcomed representatives of two local charities to Thursday Club.
Afama and Prodis were the two charities selected by ESRA North to receive monies raised by raffles at evening dinners, the Christmas Bazaar and individual donations. Each charity was given 2000€ for their work. Prodis received their cheque from Bob Maynard, the ESRA North Newsletter Editor, and Brian Lowndes, Vice Chair of ESRA North, presented the cheque to Afama.

The fun did not stop there. There was a surprise presentation to ESRA North member Mary Burns (top photo). Mary received a framed certificate of appreciation for her hard work and dedication in recycling cards for ESRA North to sell. Mary often does this work in her own time, and last year she raised on excess of 400€.
