The Dolmen Centre has a wonderful writers’ group called Pen2Paper who have published a book of short stories and paintings called “A New Day Dawns”. This is local talent and is a credit to them all.The book is on sale in Diver’s and The Present Day and all proceeds go to the RNLI, The Alzheimer’s Society and The Irish Guide Dogs Association. The Writers’ Group are amazed at the support they have got so far. They have surpassed their intended targets and have now sponsored a young dog to be trained as a guide dog and all monies raised are to be spent in Donegal.
