On three consecutive Fridays over the past weeks Ballydehob Union of Parishes met at the Danno O’Mahony Statue in the centre of Ballydehob to host a Summer Fundraiser.
Members of the congregation and visitors alike brought home-baked goods, handmade crafts, country produce, and books for sale.
The event was also an opportunity for community-building and socialising after many months of not being able to meet up, and in line with current government guidelines.
The Rev. Steve McCann, Rector of Ballydehob Union, said:
The highlight of the three Fridays was witnessing so many friends and neighbours sharing reunions with one another.
Thank you to all those who organised, contributed to, and supported this new opportunity of fundraising for the Ballydehob Union of Parishes. A special thank you to Mrs. Annie O’Donovan who oversaw the organisation of the event with her gifted insight and her mindfulness for detail.
We look forward to future events which foster the growth of our community and parish.
