Just what Breezy kneaded! Christmas comes early for amazing Glenties woman

first_imgDonegal’s famous baker Breezy Willow Kelly was overwhelmed by a surprise gift this week when a brand new oven landed at her door.Breezy, the driving force behind the “Bake Bread for Peace”, was left speechless when Irwin Expert Electrical made a delivery of a new cooker last Friday afternoon.With her own cooker a little worse for wear after so many uses, the brand new appliance was a thoughtful gift arranged by two good friends and neighbours who benefitted from Breezy’s wonderful attitude to life. Breezy Willow receives a new cooker from Irwin Expert ElectricalAs they say: “One good turn deserves another”, and even if the many good turns are so many that you have no meaningful way to repay them, Breezys good friends and neighbours, Anne Frances Long and Susan O’Donnell wanted to do something to repay kindness to her after she so kindly helped them over the past number of months.Born and bred in Glenties, a baker, poet and story maker, Breezy started a worldwide movement three years ago which really rose in popularity. “Bake Bread for Peace” was a way she knew she could heal people in times of sorrow and in difficult times for families and local communities.Anne Frances said: “Breezy came and with her good humour, cooking skills to make sure everyone was fed and she literally just kept everyone going. She always arrives and leaves quietly with no fuss, just there to help others. “How do you ever repay that type of kindness and thank someone for that without being asked? I went around to her house to visit her to thank her personally and noticed that the oven that she uses to bake all day everyday had a broken door and she had a chair against it to keep it closed.”  Afterwards both Anne Frances and Susan contacted Irwin Expert Electrical in Letterkenny, told them their stories and all about Breezy and they were delighted to respond by saying of course they would help by supplying a new cooker for Breezy.Breezy Willow receives a new cooker from Irwin Expert ElectricalBreezy herself had a difficult upbringing, and she said the only place she felt secure was in the kitchen when her mother was baking bread. Her mother was a master baker and the smell of freshly baked bread was the aroma of peace which made her feel safe. Breezy wanted others to feel this across the world, and so “Bake Bread for Peace” began. Now, people all over the world come together to spend some time in the kitchen, enjoying some therapeutic baking and time together.Breezy’s aim was that no matter where you are in the world, just invite people to your home for an evening of baking and talking.Now, with a brand new cooker installed in her own kitchen, Breezy will be able to enjoy even better baking.Breezy Willow with her friends Anne Frances and SusaThere were hugs, laughs and tears last Friday when Breezy opened the door to see the Irwin Expert Electrical’s Van parked outside and the delivery man leaving off a large box wrapped in a big red bow. Little did she know that for her, Christmas really could come early. She just couldn’t believe the kindness that her neighbours and Irwin Expert Electrical had shown to her.Just what Breezy kneaded!

Western Bulk Suffers Losses in Chilean Unit

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Western Bulk Norway’s dry bulk vessel operator Western Bulk did not meet its performance expectations mainly due to significant losses experienced in the company’s Chile business unit.After good performance for the first half of the year, the vessel operator said that the second half fell short of expectations as its Chilean business experienced a net TC loss of USD 10 million during the period, combined with low market volatility in the third quarter hampering performance across the group.“In Chile it was revealed that contracts had been approved based on unrealistic assumptions presented by a trusted employee, combined with the market moving against the positions, as well as weather delays. The Chile business unit has been restructured and the employee removed from his position, and internal control routines have been reviewed and enhanced,” Western Bulk explained.As the majority of the loss-making contracts in Chile terminate in the first quarter of 2019, and the restructuring of the business unit has made it more focused on short term contracts in line with other business units, a zero net TC result is expected from Chile in 2019.“After ending both 2017 and the first half of 2018 with increase in profitability, the last six months of 2018 were disappointing due to losses in Chile. At the same time, with the Chile business unit restructured and a good fourth quarter I am convinced that we will be able to better reflect the strong performance in the remaining business units on group level in 2019,” Jens Ismar, CEO of Western Bulk, said.Despite significant losses in Chile, full year profit after tax decreased slightly from USD 4.3 million to USD 4.2 million in 2018.last_img read more
