Members of Newbridge Drama Group (NDG) were delighted to support a local charity, HOPE (D) at a recent cheque presentation at their premises in Henry Street, Newbridge.  

The money was raised at NDG’s ‘Remembering Brian” fundraiser which they organised in memory of their dear friend and former member, Brian Cornally.  

The support on the night from various community groups was tremendous and the committee wish once again to thank all those who contributed so generously.  

A cheque was also forwarded to Pieta House. The members of NDG were warmly welcomed at the HOPE (D) premises by volunteers Terri Thorpe, Peter Origan and Colette Dunne. They were given a tour of the facility and an overview of the services provided by HOPE (D) such as counselling, workshops, holistic therapies, school visits and annual events.
