Newcastle Lions Club Host Celebratory Evening in aid of Daisy Lodge Fund.

On Wednesday evening in a packed  Newcastle Bowling Club Newcastle Lions Club hosted a celebratory talk show in aid of  Daisy Lodge  Fund, with  B&B By the Sea star Chef Alex Greene who was interviewed by  MC for the evening by BBC radio presenter, David O'Reilly. The evening had been billed as the opportunity to meet some of the stars, through  conversation ,which  Alex had worked  with during the production of  B& B by the  Sea. As well as being introduced to  Deborah Meadon, Shirley  Ballas, Linford  Christie and Gloria  Hunniford , MC David O'Reilly expertly introduced the audience as how  Alex began life. This produced many laughs , as Alex shared tales as to how he began his journey as a child working on the family farm and his working in the Bucks Head, Dundrum washing dishes. Later  Alex moved on to  Deanes in  Belfast where, while working there  the restaurant  received the  Michelin Star  under  Derek  Creagh.

At the end of the evening  Newcastle Lions Marian  Mc Greevey thanked  Alex and David for giving of their time, thanks were also extended to  Newcastle Bowling Club and  Newry ,Mourne and Down  District  Council for allowing use of the premises. Newcastle Lions  Club will now arrange to make a large donation to  the  Children's Cancer Fund  Daisy Lodge as a result of donations from  the Daisy  Dander, the coffee morning  in  Scopers Dundrum and the Celebratory  Evening with  Alex.
