Seamus Dillon Trust Neart Laistigh
As you may be aware, a number of fundraising events have been run in recent months to provide funds for medical and IT equipment for Seamus Dillon.
Whilst a relatively sizeable amount of cash has been raised, it is simply not enough to provide the day-to-day and long-term essential care for Seamus. As such, it is the objective of The Seamus Dillon Trust to provide enough financial assistance to provide him with whatever need he requires to ensure his ease of living.
This Christmas we are planning two novel and family-orientated events and we are asking you to participate, in whatever way, to ensure this is both a fun and financial success.
On Christmas day, the Mac Nean Ice Breakers are holding their Christmas Day swim and have kindly offered to donate all of the funds to the Trust. Obviously, we need as many people to get involved, whether partaking or sponsoring, and so ask you to spread the word and sign up. Participants can simply dip their toe into the water or go for a swim. It is supervised by qualified instructors and attended by the Gardai. Under 18s will have to be accompanied by an adult. Hot refreshments will be provided by The Bush Bar after the swim.
On St Stephens Day, a sponsored walk will also take place around Glenfarne wood – with all ages and fitness levels welcome. Details, including time and routes, of the event will be outlined in the Leitrim Observer over the coming weeks. There will also be light refreshments provided afterwards in The Rainbow.
Anyone wishing to take part in either event can obtain a sponsorship card from any of the organisers listed below.
As stated, such events like these are important to continue our funding for Seamus in the coming years.
We very much appreciate all the generous donations we have already received and we look forward to seeing you over the Christmas period. Should you also have any ideas for future fundraising events or want to host your own, please feel free to contact any of the listed people below.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to call.
