Lillies Bordello raises €835 for HIV Ireland

At a fundraising night in February, organised by Lillies Bordello Dublin, €835 was raised in aid of HIV Ireland.  The fundraising night – Remembering The Diceman – was also a tribute to Thom McGinty, who was diagnosed with HIV in 1990 and died in 1995.

Alan Amsby (Mr. Pussy) was on hand to present the cheque to HIV Ireland’s Susan Donlon.  Niall Mulligan, Director of HIV Ireland thanked the team at Lillies Bordello for organising the fundraiser, and all those who attended and donated so generously on the night.
