On November 22nd we are proudly a part of a special charity coffee morning with all proceeds going to Dublin based charity LauraLynn.
After a trip to LauraLynn to witness the services they provide and the work that they do, Grace Mongey (@facesbygrace) knew immediately she wanted to do anything possible to help this worthy charity.
In a post to her 180k followers, Grace said, “I met the lovely girls from LauraLynn last Christmas when myself and Sienna attended their light up Laura Lynn Christmas event. A few months later I organised to meet the girls again for a tour of the hospice and get to know exactly what happens on a day to day in Laura Lynn. It was an extremely emotional day but also amazing to see the fantastic work and care that is given in Laura Lynn. I knew leaving there that day I had to do everything I could to help.”
She continued, “You never know when life may change and it is heartbreaking to think of the poor children that use their service but being there it was absolutely gorgeous.”
