Toddlers & Wobblers friends choose Hospice as charity

St Brigid's Hospice on The Curragh is the new charity chosen by the Friends of Toddlers and Wobblers Creche, writes Brian Byrne.

The group (above at an event last year) has been participating in the Flora Women's Mini Marathon for a number of years, raising over €20,000 for the Make A Wish Foundation through that event and other fundraisers.

"We thought it was time to bring our fundraising home," says the group's Imelda Pembroke. "At our first meeting this year we agreed on the Hospice. In addition to the Mini Marathon, we'll be organising bag-packing in Dunnes Stores, a street collection, and a social night with raffle and auction."
