Now the dust has settled and the pennies have been counted – a message from the Winter Market Committee!
A HUGE thank you to all in making the Winter Market such a success! Thank you to all those who gave their time to run the various stalls/areas, who cooked and baked, who decorated and cleaned up and of course to all of the wonderful DSP community for coming along and spending your hard earned cash on the day! 
Although it will be the New Year before an exact figure can be given as expenses are not quite finalised, the amount raised on the day was a fantastic €7,600!!!
While it is impossible to thank everyone personally – a special mention for the following people and businesses who kindly donated:
The DSP Produce Team (another triumph!), Naomi’s Kitchen (delicious mince pies – www.naomiskitchen.ie), John Martin (fabulous pop-sockets), Barry (aka Santa), Ivan Varian (delicious soup – www.thedalkeyfoodcompany.com)
Huge appreciation for the raffle donations to:
MCD, Newpark Sports Centre, Carton House Hotel, Brother Hubbard, DeVille’s, Hartleys, Fitzpatrick Hotel, Royal Marine Hotel, Emma Webb Design, Robert Bourke Architects, Mark Baker, Christy Moore, Core Credit Union, Sam Elliot, Touch of Colour – Leopardstown, Mamamoments, Whelans Wine Store.
And lastly a massive thanks to Miriam and all the teachers & staff for their patience in accommodating all the market mess and letting us take over the school!!
Wishing everyone a fantastic festive season!! The PTA Team
