Millbrook Lodge Fundraising Evening
Eddie Madine joined friends and family for a belated 50th birthday party at Millbrook Lodge on Thursday 12th May. All proceeds from the evening went to the RVH Liver Support Group.
Early in the evening Donald Cairnduff, chair of the RVH Liver Support Group, had spoken about the work of the charity in patient care, supplying necessary resources for the treatment of liver patients in the RVH and the promotion of the Organ Donor register.
It was a lively and enjoyable event. Guests enjoyed supper to an accompaniment of songs from a wide range of eras to suit a wide range of ages, provided by DJ Johnny Quinn. There was a display of Irish dancing by dancers from the Fegan – Curran School of Irish Dancing. An auction was led by Mr. Ian Wilson of Wilson’s Auctions and the evening ended with dancing to the Michael English Band.
A sum of £5,005 was raised and handed over to the charity’s founder, Kay Duffy, on the afternoon of 10th June. All connected with the RVH Liver Support Group are very grateful for the time and effort that Eddie and his friends have put in to raise this magnificent total.
Eddie is on the list for a liver transplant. Let’s hope he doesn’t have to wait long before he gets the call that will restore him to full health.
