Barnardos Ambassador Miriam O’Callaghan with Leah Fleet and Alannah McCarthy Maher launching the Milk and Cookies event.

IN the wake of the hugely successful annual Teddy’s Bear picnic fundraiser the Celtic Ross Hotel in Rosscarbery are hosting a Milk & Cookies Morning as part of Select Hotels nationwide Milk & Cookies Morning event at participating Hotels on Wednesday, August 8th next.

All donations will go to the hotel group’s chosen charity, Barnardos, a charity close to many people’s hearts, working with Irish families and children in over 40 communities around the country.

Launched by Barnardos Ambassador Miriam O’Callaghan, the event will take place from 11am – 1pm.

Children will be provided with free milk and cookies and families are invited to make a donation of their choice to the children’s charity.

This wonderful event is being organised by Una Young, GM of Select Hotels of Ireland and brought to life regionally in all of the Select hotels throughout the country, that specialise in Family Holidays.

Helen Wycherley from the Celtic Ross said, “We are really looking forward to next Wednesday, we have so many exciting things planned on the day including lots of free entertainment; Children’s Disco, Face Painting, Princess Hairstyles, Kids activities and lots more.

“Select Hotels Milk & Cookies Morning is a great way for families to enjoy a fun day together whilst fundraising for such a worthy cause so I hope to see you all there on the day.”

Entry to the event is free for families and Barnardos donation boxes will be displayed in the hotel for anyone who would like to make a donation.

Mums and Dads won’t be left out in the cold, as tea and coffees will be available to purchase on the day and will also get the chance to win some fabulous prizes
