Portlaoise Youth Cafe will hold a Bingo fundraiser this Sunday to raise money for the cafe.
Owen Lawler explained: “Bingo is something people like to do on a Sunday afternoon and it gives us an opportunity to show people the services we provide here.”
Any money raised will go straight towards enhancing the facilities for the young people in the town.
“It’s a general fundraiser for the Youth Cafe, hopefully some of the money will go towards an outing for the young people and maybe upgrading the music equipment.”
Owen continued: “So far we have over 25 spot prizes to be won on the day. Most shops and businesses we have approached have given us something towards it.”
“We are a non-profit organisation so every penny we can fundraise means a lot to the young people.”
Bingo gets underway at 3pm. Books €4 for a single €6 for a double book.
