This month saw the the delivery of a new Citroen Berlingo Van to the Schull and Goleen Social Centre. The van sponsored by Denis and Mary Ryan Car Sales will help with the delivery of the meals on wheels service. A huge thank you to Denis and Mary Ryan Car sales for the sponsored vehicle to BHP Insurance for the sponsored Insurance, to Biggs Oil Company for sponsoring the Diesel for the year and to Carbery Plastics for sponsoring the tank for the diesel. The meals on wheels service in Goleen and Schull is now delivering a 5 day/week service in the Mizen Peninsula and two in-house on Mondays and Thursdays in the Goleen/Schull centres – which is hoped to be extended in the weeks ahead. Well done to the volunteers, workers, and to the users who have supported this service. With this new Citroen Berlingo van and the bus purchased by the Goleen and District Community Council recently this vital service will get better and better for the vulnerable people of our area.
