Candle of Grace is a charity based in Castlebar, Co. Mayo. Our main activities are organisation of rehabilitation rest for Chernobyl children in the summer, sending clothes to Ukrainian orphanages in the war zone, sponsoring disabled children institutions in Belarus. We’ve been busy with our activities in Castlebar for the last few years, you might have heard about us already!
On 3rd March 2019, Sunday, we are holding our annual fundraising event called Pancake Feast in the Celtic Club, Castlebar at 4pm. There will be live music, dancing, raffles, face painting, a fair of traditional Eastern European food and handmade souvenirs. Our volunteers will make lots of hot pancakes with a topping of your choice! This is a lovely opportunity for the local community to come together, find out more about Eastern European culture and traditions, have a fun family day and contribute to a worthy cause all at the same time! This year we are hosting Sisters of Mercy from the St Elizabeth’s convent, Belarus who are world famous for their Heart to Heart Festival Fair. Every year Candle of Grace tries to help as much as possible the disabled children under the care of the convent. People of Mayo kindly donate clothes and funds which are brought over to those in need by the Sisters.
As our annual Pancake Feast gets bigger and bigger every year, we are appealing to the local businesses to help us out with raffle prizes such as a hamper or a voucher for your shop/restaurant/services etc. Also, we are looking for consumables for the day, eg disposable plates, cups, cutlery, napkins, bin bags etc. If you would like to help with the costs or provide goods in kind, please do let us know!
Your help would be so much appreciated and we will post your details as our kind sponsors on our Facebook page Candle of Grace. We are currently contacting the local newspapers to see if we can get an article in as well, we would be more than happy to mention your business there too if it goes ahead.
We would be grateful if you could let us know of your interest to contribute to our fundraiser as soon as possible, which will help us attract more guests and promote your business. If you wish to place a banner or fliers for your business at the event venue, please let us know in advance so we can arrange it for you.
