Well-Attended Coffee Morning in Wicklow

GROW group members from Arklow and Wicklow helped to organise a very successful coffee morning on October 12th  to raise awareness for World  Mental Health Week.

The event took place in De La Salle Pastoral Centre in Wicklow Town and was supported by number of different organisations and their representatives including Ita Kelly, on behalf of the psychiatric unit in Wicklow Town; MHE, Connecting for Life, NLN Link Arklow, addiction services in Arklow and Wicklow, local employability services and the  Samaritans.

Area Coordinator Izabela Morris extends a special ‘thank you’ to Wayne, organiser of GROW’s Wicklow Group, for putting such a massive amount of energy into advertising the event and his wife, Martina, for carrying details of the coffee morning and GROW to others.

Heartfelt thanks is also extended to Anna, George and Frank from the Wicklow group and Ann R and Ellen from the Arklow group for their time and effort.

The very successful coffee morning was featured in the Wicklow People (see picture above).
