On Monday September 7th a socially distanced fundraiser was held at Leixlip Tennis Club (by kind permission of the Tennis Club Committee).
The event, which was the brainchild of club member Deirdre O'Driscoll, who is a friend of Freya's family, was originally to be held in April but had to be postponed because of Covid 19. So a very much scaled down event was held instead.
On what was a beautiful sunny morning, we played tennis, had tea/coffee and delicious cakes, sold jams and cakes and had a super raffle.
We were also treated to several songs by our own Kathy Nugent (Carroll).
The generosity of our members, friends and neighbours was incredible, thanks are also due to the many businesses in Leixlip, Lucan and beyond who provided many of the raffle prizes.
The amazing sum of 1,020 euro was raised!
This money will help the parents of Freya, who has Ohtahara Syndrome, to provide some of the necessities which are urgently needed to improve her quality of life.
