Thank you to everyone who attended the launch of our charity CD in Tullamore in October. The CD, by the Midnight Boogie Band and Johnny Brady, was launched at a charity concert featuring Irish music stars such as Mundy, Bagatelle, Caroline J Harte and many more. Thank you to all the acts who gave their time to perform at the event and to everyone who supported on the night or by purchasing a CD!

Best of luck to everyone taking part in festive fundraising events over Christmas! From Carol Singing to Christmas Day Swims, we have lots of great supporters getting out and about to raise funds for Fighting Blindness, thank you all so much. Happy Christmas!
