A 'sweet' windfall!

WINDMILL Therapeutic Unit received a 'sweet' windfall from their local shop when O'Neills Sweetstore presented them with a cheque for €1,000.

Over the last while some of the proceeds from the pick n mix sweet counter in O'Neill's on South Main Street has been collected for charity, and last week Windmill received their sugary share.

According to manager Anne Smith, O'Neill's Sweetstores in Wexford and Waterford have run similiar initiatives and nine charities will benefit.

'We picked the Windmill Therapeutic Unit as our chosen charity. They are only around the corner from us, and they are always in and out of the shop. We thought it would be nice to do something for them as they've been hit by cutbacks,' she said.

'All of the money raised came from our customers.'
