Sunday 21 October is approaching quickly for the community of Lawrencetown in Galway, as they look forward to their monster charity auction and family barbecue day. Bidding lots will include fuel, fodder, holidays, building supplies, tools, home appliances and much more. Organisers of the event aim to raise funds for a safe and accessible car park at Lawrencetown National School. Presently parents driving have little to no designated spaces. Recent reports show the average driver passes the school at 80km/h on the bottleneck road with blind spots, where young children must cross twice daily.

The auction will be held at the Kiltormer complex from noon and all are welcome from far and near.
