‘Bring your own bottle’ barn dance fundraiser huge success for charity in Africa

Barn dance raises €3,500 for charity in Africa

A great night was had at the ‘bring your own bottle’ barn dance held in Mary Keenan’s Barn, Ballinacarrig, Carlow, recently where an amazing €3,500 was raised for a charity in Uganda.

A great night was had by all who attended the dance on Friday night, March 8 in the barn with line dancing, jiving, waltzing and great fun all around.

The dancing and social event was in aid of the UgaIrish Project in Uganda.

The organisers wish to thank everyone who supported this fun event and made the dance such a huge success.

“Thanks go to Mary Keenan, for the use of her beautiful barn, to all those who came to the dance, those who gave donations, raffle prizes and Declan and the line dancers.

“It was a great night and raised €3,500 for the charity,” organisers said.

UgaIrish Project exists to support and encourage Ugandan communities to be in a position to provide for themselves through sustainable enterprise the basic needs of life – education, health, food and accommodation.

The Project was founded by Siobhán Kinsella when she visited Kamuzinda Children’s Village in 2006.

It is funded by donations, and by fund-raising events run by the volunteers who travel each year to Uganda.

The charity also organises sponsors, who pay for the education of children in the area, or for the accommodation and education of special needs children in suitable schools.
