RehabCare Carlow has donated €702 to help fund St Clare’s Hospitality Kitchen.

The money was raised by completing a 5km charity walk and was handed over to the charity at a special celebration held at the centre.

Staff, people who use the RehabCare service, CE participants and volunteers took part in the walk last year.

St Clare’s Hospitality Kitchen opens five days a week and provides hot meals and food parcels for those who need it most in the community.

The kitchen is run predominantly by volunteers, including RehabCare service users Paul Collins, Adrian Dermody and (until recently) Liz Kemple from Resource Carlow.

There are upwards of 80 meals being provided daily with over 16,500 meals provided in 2017 alone.

Also at the celebratory lunch was Fr Liam Lawton from the kitchen. He was presented with a recording of Crazy by Brigid Delaney, which was completed as part of her person-centred plan.

Martin Lacey helped by recording and arranging the backing track.
