Wexford ICA hit the ground running at their recent meeting when they presented two cheques to some deserving local causes.
St Patrick's Special School and Hope Cancer Support Centre were the two groups that benefitted from six ICA fundraiser walks around the county. Each group received €1,850 as a result of the walks, which were organised by Sports Officer with Wexford Federation Alice Whitty.
The groups weren't the only ones who benefitted on the night. Several ICA members also won big for their entries into a Valentine's Day crochet competition. Mary Somers from the Oylgate guild came first for her white cotton gloves adorned with crocheted roses. Ann Doran, also from Oylgate, received second for her crocheted collar and Philo Whelan of the Cushinstown Guild came third for her creative flower bouquet. Meanwhile, Mella Winters from the Taghmon Guild won first prize for her entry into the simnel cake contest, followed closely by Marjorie Keane from The Maudlins Guild and Mary D'Arcy of the Ballyfad Guild. Mella will go forward to the National final on March 12.
