Mount Carmel Care Home's annual draw is commencing again soon. Our promoters will be calling to you in the coming weeks. We hope that you will be able to continue to support this very worthy local venture - €20 for the full year and you are in for 12 draws. We would like to thank those who continue to support us year after year. As well as having a chance to win 15 prizes from the €200 down each month, you are supporting this invaluable facility that is in Callan, where residents have all their needs catered for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition Mount Carmel supplies dinners to many older people each day in their own homes. It is one of only 8 such Supported Care Homes in the whole country and they are all based in the South East. It provides a wonderful model of care for the elderly and is the envy of many places. The fact that we are based in the town means that the residents are free to go down the town any time they like. To the rear of Mount Carmel is a limited number of much sought-after bungalows catering for people capable of independent living. Please call into Mount Carmel 056-7725301 or to Elaine in the Post Office 0567725231 if you would like to support the draw or if you want to drop your membership for any other promoter into the Post Office, I will be sure they will get it. People retiring from their regular job often express the wish to do some voluntary work to ease them into retirement and to give something back to the community. What could be more beneficial to others and personally rewarding than to become a Friend of Mount Carmel and maybe even a promoter. If you would like to join by EFT the bank details are as follows. BIC - AIBKIE2D. IBAN - IE42AIBK93309014719002 and please contact Elaine at the above phone number or on Facebook at the Friends of Mount Carmel page by private message
