Mother’s Day Treat

Where there is kindness, there is goodness, and where there is goodness, there is magic. And Healy Mac’s stands true to this maxim by preparing a sumptuous lunch for approximately 100 children from five children’s homes in Ipoh on Sunday, May 10 at the Healy Mac’s Irish Bar & Restaurant in Greentown Avenue. Donations were given to each home too.

“Being Mother’s Day, I thought it fitting to bring the kids and let them feel wanted. We give back something to the community,” said Jerry Galvin, the outlet manager, to Ipoh Echo.

A clown put on a balloon show for the children aged between 5 to 16 years old. They were from Good Shepherd Family Home, Hannah Home, Praise Home and the Tambun and Buntong flats, respectively.

Every year, charitable acts are always a priority with Healy Mac’s. “I’d like to see more companies doing something similar. It takes very little to make these kids happy and the effect is priceless. It’s nice to see the kids go home with a smile on their faces,” the friendly and humble Jerry added.

Miss Quah from the Good Shepherd Family Home expressed her gratitude to Healy Mac’s for organising the event. “They’re very good kids and this is one outing they eagerly await,” said the good lady.
