Daffodil Day

Today we delivered some gifts of chocolate and daffodils to lots of older people! We wanted to brighten their day and to celebrate Daffodil Day.

Great work by our wonderful team of volunteers getting fresh Daffodils delivered all over the Drogheda area.

Rest in Peace, Anthony

We are very sad to report the passing of one of our great and dedicated volunteers, Anthony Lynch.  

Anthony joined us ten years ago. He was always available, great company, loved the craic and was a truly very kind, caring person. His contribution to our town and its people will forever be remembered, as will his smile and wicked sense of humour. Rest in Peace our dear friend. We are all going to miss you.

Joan McEvoy RIP

Joan McEvoy, one of our most loved and founder member of our organisation, has sadly passed away. Joan was an amazing, funny, kind, enthusiastic, warm and exceptionally caring lady whose drive and commitment is one of the main reasons our charity is where it is today. We will miss you Joan. You will never be forgotten, especially when we eat apple pie!!


Great excitement today at the launch of the Trishaw for older people.  Watch out for it around town! Video here!
