Special Coffee Morning for Ukrainians in Greystones
The event on 30th September takes place from 11 a.m. at Tiglin Center, Coolnagreina Road, Greystones. All Ukrainians are invited from the surrounding areas to come along and meet and integrate with fellow Ukrainians living in Irish homes and various accommodation situations. They can chat over a very enjoyable cup of coffee and biscuits.
The Irish government and the kind hearted people of Ireland have welcomed almost 60,000 people from Ukraine since the horrific war broke out on February 24 last. Many of these desperate people who have left families, friends, as well as their pets, in their war torn cities and towns have found refuge in Co.Wicklow on the east coast of Ireland. Co.Wicklow is better known as “The Garden of Ireland” because of it’s scenic beauty which has proven very popular with the Ukrainians, who are now living there. They are enjoying the beauty of the sea, mountains, forests and lakes, and the hospitality of the Irish people which is world renowned. Local charity organisations like the Lions Clubs, who are part of Lions International, have also come to the assistance of the Ukrainian people which are mostly mothers and children.
Various welcome events are held almost weekly in various parts of the country. This weekend one of these exciting events will take place in a picturesque town called Greystones. This warm get together is affectionally called a “Coffee Morning”
All Ukrainians are invited from the surrounding areas to come along and meet and integrate with fellow Ukrainians living in Irish homes and various accommodation situations. They can chat over a very enjoyable cup of coffee or the more popular cup of Irish tea and biscuits!
There will be representatives of local support and welfare from a number of organisations to offer help and advice. The main reason for this “welcome morning” is to make people aware that help is always near to hand in every way possible. Many events like this will be held on a regular basis throughout the year.
Volunteer members of the Lions clubs from Greystones and Wicklow have been involved in every aspect of humanitarian help for the past 6 months and this help will continue as long as there are Ukrainian people living on the island of Ireland.
