MUCH needed funds will be raised for three Clare organisations during a Charity Fun Day at the Cliffs of Moher Experience this Saturday, May 27th.
Complimentary admission for the Cliffs of Moher by pre-booking for the day using the promo code ‘charityday23’ on the cliffsofmoher.ie website.
Sláinte an Chláir, Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind (IGDB) Clare Branch and Brothers of Charity Services Clare will all benefit from the fundraiser.
Geraldine Enright, Director of Cliffs of Moher Experience explained, “The upcoming fundraiser is as much as about raising local awareness of the three charities concerned as it is about generating funds to help them to deliver and invest in their services throughout Clare. The Cliffs of Moher Experience Charity of the Year programme, which was first initiated by staff in 2020, is part of the ongoing support and social responsibility activities that help the Cliffs of Moher Experience build bridges with the local community”.
She said, “We are encouraging people from across Clare to come along on Saturday May 27th to meet with some of the those delivering a range of vitally important services in communities throughout our county, as well as enjoy the fun activities taking place throughout the site”.
Leonard Cleary Director of Rural Development and West Clare MD, Clare County Council; commented, “Charity service providers have been impacted in recent years by a substantial decrease in fundraising activity which emphasises the even greater importance that events such as the upcoming Charity Fun Day are well supported”.
Brothers of Charity Services Ireland delivers 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.
Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind (IGDB) is Ireland’s national charity dedicated to enabling people who are vision impaired and families of children with autism to achieve improved mobility and independence. In Clare, the charity is currently working with two puppy raisers, two brood holders, one Assistance Dog family and two Guide Dog owners. All services are provided free of charge.
