McKenna Coffee Morning

The McKenna family had coffee morning on the 3rd March 2013 in memory of their sister Shannon. They each made some homemade goodies and the youngest sister Rachael, aged 12, set up a tombola table which alone raised £65. There was also a table set up on which they displayed Soft UK leaflets and set up a special tribute to their sister with a presentation explaining what Trisomy 18 is.

Everyone was well fed and they still had enough left over to be able to donate evening tea and treats to the local senior nursing home. The coffee morning was well supported by family and friends and they managed to raise £555 for SOFT.
