THE Paco fashion store at the Mall was a hive of activity this morning for a charity event in aid of a great cause.

There were fashion shows, scones, cakes, teas and coffee served to customers who gave generously throughout the morning and early afternoon.

“We’re trying to raise €20,000 to buy 10 new chemotherapy chairs for University Hospital Kerry,” said Mary Lynch, who organised the event, helped by Paco staff.

“They are special chairs which cost €2,000 each and are badly needed at the unit,” she said.

Eileen Whelan, Manager at Paco, was delighted to help out Mary’s campaign.

We put on a coffee morning with Der O’Sullivan’s supplying the scones and cakes from Brudair’s. Everyone was so good to us. People have been donating and we did interval fashion shows during the event with customers and friends helping out as models. It’s a fun day,” said Eileen.

It was a very successful morning with a good amount raised for the campaign. Eileen said Paco put on these type of fundraisers every five or six weeks for various charities which are always well-supported by their customers.
