“Bud’s Family Resource Centre in Ballyduff were kept busy last Thursday morning as a result of a fundraising coffee morning held in aid of the the S.O.F.T Ireland charity.

Vanessa Meehan from Bud’s was the main organiser of the event and she is someone who has been receving support from S.O.F.T Ireland for almost 30 years and so it’s an organisation, it’s a cause that’s very close to Vanessa’s heart.

She said this week that she was delighted with the amazing turn out as friends from near and far came to join her for cuppa and a chat.” Kerryman 23Feb2023
