GREAT RESPONSE TO CORRIN COTTAGE OPEN DAY
Peter and Margaret McCormack hosted a very successful open day last Sunday when members of the public were invited to visit their self-sufficiency garden at Corrin Cottage a short distance outside Fermoy.
Margaret is heavily involved in the Malawi Orphans Appeal Fund, which has raised thousands of euro for underprivileged children in this African country. Margaret and her friends are in regular contact with Malawi and receive updates about how and where money is being spent.
Thanks to the generosity of Fermoy people a new school has been built and this is seen as critical in improving the lot of orphans.
This was Margaret’s first time hosting such an event and she was thrilled with the response. Together with her husband Peter they’ve created a garden that supplies them with fruit and vegetables. It’s been a particularly good year for the garden which has yielded excellent red onions, turnips, leeks, potatoes, peas and rhubarb.
Margaret also invested in 3 well bred Rhode Island hens which have settled in well at Corrin Cottage. Protected from predators and living a free range existence the hens are each producing an egg a day for the McCormack household.
Margaret and Peter said they were delighted so many people took time out to support the Malawi Orphans Appeal Fund and take this opportunity to thank the public for their generosity and support.
