LIGHT A CANDLE WITH CHARLIE
In Ashford on Friday 31 st March @ 6.30pm we would like to see the community of Ashford and the
surrounding area come out and show support by meeting on the Vartry River bridge in Ashford to
recognise the 1 year Anniversary of climb with Charlie.
The candles lit will show support for everyone with a terminal illness, for those people fighting a
mental health illness, for our healthcare frontline workers and for the people of Urkaine.
Please bring a candle to light to show support and there will also be light music played by the
Wicklow Ukulele players supported by Ronan.

Delia Barry shot to fame recently having knit the now iconic jumpers for Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Barry Keoghan in the Oscar-nominated movie, the Banshees of Inisherin. Brendan even asked her to knit 2 more for him since! What we didn't know before now was that Delia is no stranger to the celebrity world having knit for Meryl Streep for her role in Dancing At Lughnasa and having taught Emily Watson how to knit for her role in the movie Little Women!
Delia joined the knitting group that ran as part of a range of activities offered by Greystones Cancer Support when her husband Paddy died over 10 years ago. She found friends and comfort from the group and from GCS and so wanted to give something special back to them.
So we wanted to let you know about an exciting raffle we're running where Delia will knit a custom-made Aran Jumper for one lucky winner! There are 4 designs the winner can choose from and they'll also be able to pick the size they want and colour of the wool, which we think makes this raffle particularly special.
We're selling tickets on the link below so if you or anyone you know might like to buy a ticket we'd love if you could share it with family, friends, social media, in the paper! as we know this will be of interest to many people. Tickets are €10 each or 3 for €25:
Here is the link to buy a ticket and also images of the 4 designs the winner can choose:
We've also shared details of the raffle on our Instagram page that might be easy for you to share:
