“After six weeks of fundraising the winner was announced last week of the ‘You’re a Star’ quilt, made by the members of the South Midlands Branch of the Irish Patchwork Society and raffled in aid of Teac Tom. The raffle raised a fantastic €2,870 for Teac Tom and with a further donation from The Kilkenny Observer, this brings the total to €3,020 which will go towards providing continued support and counselling for those affected by suicide or struggling with their mental health. The raffle was held in the garden at Teac Tom and the lucky winner of the quilt was Kathleen Mahon from Dublin. In addition there were two runner up winners who each won a beautiful cushion in the same star pattern as the quilt. The winners of the cushions were Bernie Stevenson from Kilkenny and Meg O’ Hanlon from Dundalk. Thank you to everyone who supported this wonderful fundraiser for a great cause, a special thanks to KCLR, The Kilkenny Observer, Meubles and St. Canices Credit Untion and not forgetting Mary Palmer (Textile Artist).
