The drops of rain didn’t dampen the spirits as of the staff and volunteers of Bruff Credit Union as they celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by throwing open their doors to members and non-members alike. The queue for the face-painter often reached the double digits as the kids of all ages lined up for Spider-Man, Princess, Butterflies and Irish Flags! Bags upon bags of sweets and treats were pushed into eager hands and their offices were an art gallery once all the colouring sheets were completed. Visitors eagerly entered the competitions offering the winners a Bakehouse Voucher and a Samsung Tablet. Winners to be announced soon.

Once the parade started the signs of the Credit Union could be seen high above the crowd and the Bruff CU logo stood proudly in the Community Games Banner as a sponsor. On the ground the crowd happily took photos with the Bruff Credit Union facebook frame, with St. Patrick himself stopping for a picture. Bruff Credit Union joined in the Duck Race fun sponsoring 20 Blue Ducks on behalf of 20 lucky randomly chosen members. The blue ducks performed gallantly and have been carefully put into their nesting boxes in preparation for next year’s race.

The Credit Union management would like to thank the staff and volunteers for their time and support, and to congratulate all the members of the Local Community for the organisation of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Celebrations.
