If you happen to be shopping in Clonmel on this Saturday, 16th June, keep an ear peeled and an eye out for local Clonmel Trad and Folk group South Wind, who will be performing two Charity Busking Gigs on the day.
On Saturday morning between 11am and 1pm, South Wind will be belting out their stuff at SuperValu in The Poppyfields.
After lunch the self-described “mature” music group will transfer over to Tesco and will provide entertainment to all customers from 2.30 until 4.30pm.
The Charity Busking gigs are being undertaken to help with fundraising for the Friends of Bridgewater House and Knocklofty Rural Day Service.
The “Friends” were formed mainly by the parents of children and young disabled persons who attend both premises.
Funds raised are used in the main to provide a well-deserved summer holiday for those who attend the centres and also, when funds allow, to attend the occasional concert in Dublin, Cork and elsewhere.
The benefits of these little extras are priceless to the children and young adults, and the appreciation, in return, immeasurable.
So if you are in the vicinity of either SuperValu or Tesco on Saturday, enjoy the music and give the Friends of Bridgewater House and Knocklofty Rural Day Service a leg up. It is a charity fully deserving of your support.
South Wind is comprised of Ann Dwyer, Edel Meaney, Treasa Nic Dhiarmada, Mary Morris, Oliver Harte, Tommy Hartigan, Liam O’Shea and Tony Brosnan.
