Ceilidh triumph

March 29 2018

GUESTS at a St Patrick's Day ceilidh danced the night away to raise money for St Joseph's Church in Fishponds.

The event, on Saturday March 17, took place at the church hall and featured The Brewery Band who played a medley of Irish music.

During the evening, a feast of hearty Irish stew was served up followed by apples with cream. Funds were further boosted with a raffle.

The church, in Forest Road, is hoping to raise £14,000 for new toilets.

Rowena Sutcliffe, one of the organisers, said the ceilidh was very well attended.

"Following the success of this event, we are planning to arrange another event in September," she said.
