Photograph by John KellyROYAL wedding fever has hit Ennis with a special coffee morning planned to celebrate the royal nuptials, as well as  raise funds for Clare Crusaders.
When Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot this Friday, guests will be able to watch the action in style from the Cloister on Abbey Street. Refreshments will be supplied free of charge, with organisers asking that a donation be made to Clare Crusaders.
Organiser of the event on behalf of Clare Crusaders, Ennis Town Councillor Mary Howard explained, “This will be a wonderful way to celebrate the day by watching the royal wedding together and also to help raise much-needed funds for Clare Crusaders, which is a wonderful organisation. People can make donations of whatever they deem appropriate. And there will be a special lunch menu available suitable for a prince or princess.”
She went on to praise the work of Clare Crusaders saying, “They provide much-needed therapy to children living in Clare with cerebral palsy, autism, Down syndrome or other conditions. The Clare Crusader Children’s Clinic, located in Barefield, is run on a voluntary basis by parents of children with special needs and provides a variety of therapies to almost 200 children in the Clare region. The services are free of charge and include speech therapy, occupational therapy, special education, reflexology and physiotherapy. The Clare Crusaders does not receive Government funding and relies totally on fundraising and donations to generate the €250,000 required each year to maintain services to the children,” she concluded.
