CROWDS gathered in the villages of Crossroads and Killygordon last weekend to take part in a ‘Spring clean’.
The event took place on Saturday morning and was sponsored by Aurivo/Donegal Creameries, the largest employer in the area.
Following representation from Crossroads and Killygordon Enterprise (CAKE), they agreed to sponsor shrubs, flowers and other items from their Homeland Letterkenny Garden Centre.
CAKE paid a special thanks to Kimberly Porter-Hannigan from Aurivo and to all the volunteers who took part.
“Aurivo also supplied three of their staff to help us , two from Ukraine and one from Poland. They did a fantastic job indeed,” a CAKE spokesperson said.
CAKE also took the opportunity to thank Jonathan Bradley, of Braton Construction, who sponsored topsoil and use of their teleporter, Charlie Crawford from Alt Castlefinn who gave the use of his tractor and sweeper as well as a leaf blower, Brian McCreary from Topline McCrearys who sponsored his tractor and sweeper and to Mark Ewing (CE supervisor) who made himself available.
CAKE also gave thanks to the sponsors of food, Brownes Bar and The Cosy Corner Takeaway & Outside Catering and to the ladies who kept the tea flowing and the food ready for the waves of hungry people.
