A CHARITY EVENT at the Cliffs of Moher Experience will raise funds for three Clare organisations.

Sláinte an Chláir, Brothers of Charity Services Clare and Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind (IGDB) Clare Branch have been chosen as the beneficiaries of the Cliffs of Moher Charity Fun Day, which will feature family entertainment including live music and dancing, singing, face painting and spot prizes.

Organisations will also get the opportunity to meet and speak with members of the Clare public about the vital services they provide.

Cathaoirleach of Clare County Council, Cllr Joe Cooney (FG) stated, “Staff at the Cliffs of Moher Experience have a long track record of hosting charity events and helping to promote awareness of many good causes. This year’s chosen charities each do fantastic work in delivering community-based services that help people all over Clare and I would urge the public to show their support on the day”.

Geraldine Enright, General Manager of Cliffs of Moher Experience and Clare Tourism North West commented, “The Cliffs of Moher Experience Charity of the Year programme was first initiated by staff in 2020 and is part of the ongoing support and social responsibility activities that help the Cliffs of Moher Experience build bridges with the local community”.

She added, “We are inviting people of all ages to come along to enjoy the fun activities taking place throughout the site and to help to generate much needed funds to enable our three chosen charities to continue delivering a range of vitally important services in communities throughout our county”.

Brothers of Charity Services Ireland provides a combination of day, residential, respite and training services to people with an intellectual disability and their families in communities across County Clare and is the largest such provider of services in Ireland today.

Kilnamona-based Sláinte an Chláir is a voluntary cancer support centre that helps people and their families affected by cancer. All services are provided free of charge.
