A big thank you to our ESI bakers who produced (and purchased!!) some delicious cakes and sausage rolls on the morning (they didn’t last long).
We were thrilled to have raised €1210 for the Irish Guide Dogs.

A word from Brian Fahy, Managing Director
Great to meet everyone involved today and hear the details behind connecting these amazing dogs to their new families (Total costs in excess of 50k per dog). But to hear the impact they bring over many years you can see why there are so many people who help make Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind the success it is!
Big thanks to all the team at ESI for organising and special kudos to those who baked today and made the effort. The quality was top notch! And we raised a big sum as a result 👏
