Congratulations to all the community groups who are to receive Sunday passes to Body&Soul to help with their fund raising efforts! Passes will be available for collection later this month but the groups named can commence their fundraising in advance of receipt. Remember that these passes are worth €70 each (exc. booking fees) and can be raffled, auctioned or sold to raise funds for the organisations named.
The Community Panel also nominated the following causes for receipt of a share in the annual financial donation made by Body&Soul.
Shane Ivory Benefit Fund
Earlier this year, Shane was diagnosed with a rare blood cancer – Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. He is currently receiving treatment through the Denis Burkitt Ward at St. James Hospital and is not taking the illness or the tough treatment lying down. A group of Shane’s friends and family have organised these events to raise funds for Shane as he continues his battle.
Athboy Autism Support Group
We are a fully voluntary parent led group in Athboy. We offer supports and activities to families living with autism. We are raising funds for our new sensory garden.
Coolronan Dog Rescue
Ramona and Chris save hundreds of dogs’ lives every year with very little support.
