Members of the local community policing division will take part in another annual instalment of their Cops & Doughnuts initiative in the Crescent Shopping Centre, on November 20.
Speaking to Sgt Adrian Whelan, he said that last year’s event was “very successful”, raising in the region of €2,300 for the sporting organisation.
We were very happy with the success of last year, and we obviously want to go one bit further this year. We would like to ask the public if they would give as much support as they can, it would be for a very, very good cause.
If it does as well as we want it to do, everything will be a success. And whatever benefit the Special Olympics can take from this programme and charity event, everyone will be a winner and it will be a success. Sgt Whelan also commended the teamwork of the Gardaí at Roxboro Road Garda station.
Last year, they sold an estimated 2,000 doughnuts at the Crescent Shopping Centre - and this year they want to sell more.
Can you help?
