There’s  a May-Day for Tea-Day this Thursday on Church Street as May 1st is Tea Day in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society of Ireland.

Liz and Amber Galwey will host a Tea Day at Galwey Auctioneers  on Church Street from 9-30am to 4-30pm.

They’d be delighted to welcome all to support this event which is very dear to their hearts.  Lots of tea – and coffee too – and lots of fabulous home baking is promised along with the usual craic and banter which has been a huge part of the days hosted by the girls in the past.

“Tea Day is a social occasion where thousands of people – friends, family, work colleagues, neighbours – come together to drink tea and raise money for The Alzheimer Society of Ireland. This year we want to make it a real Day to Remember,” according to the society.

“With more than 41,700 families depending on our help and support, the demand on our services has never been greater. We urgently need kind-hearted new Tea Day hosts to help us raise more badly needed funds.

Tea Day is a national day of celebration to honour the memories of people affected by Alzheimer’s. Up and down the country people like you organise their own Tea Day parties for family, friends, neighbours and colleagues. They come together to drink tea, eat cake and sandwiches, take part in raffles, quizzes and games… and crucially, to raise badly needed funds for life-changing local Alzheimer services.

And we help you every step of the way! The Alzheimer Society of Ireland provide you with all the materials you need to get your Tea Day started, including invitations, posters, collection boxes, raffle tickets and a step-by-step host guide full of great ideas and tips.”

You can help locally by supporting Liz and Amber Galwey’s Tea Day at Galwey Auctioneers on Church Street on Thursday from 9-30am to 4-30pm.
