time. Since its inception, the Chamber has been setting aside funds for a ‘rainy day’ scenario.”
She continued, “There is an onus on us to do the very best we can for all our members and
Clonakilty town deserves our best efforts. This initiative gives the community the opportunity to
enhance their spending power, simply by buying Clonakilty Vouchers and spending them in the
businesses around Clonakilty town. It will be shop local at its very best.”
“Clonakilty will prevail,” she concluded.
