A great evening of summer socialising is promised in Portlaoise this Friday, July 19 from 7pm at the annual Cuisle Centre fundraising BBQ.

More than 300 people attended the first BBQ at the Centre on Portlaoise’s Block Rd last year. It is hoped that the turnout this week will be even bigger and raise crucial funds for the cancer support service.

This year’s BBQ includes an art exhibition and sale by local artists and people who have turned to art as a form of therapy.

Stella Moran of the Cuisle Centre said, that if last year was anything to go by, a great evening is store for all who decide to support this worthy cause.

“It is our main fundraising event. We get no Government support so these are the type of things we have to do to keep services free,” she said.

Food and music provided but bring your own drink. Tickets are €20. For info Phone 057 8681492
