The annual COPE Galway Christmas Day Swim is 28 years in existence this year and the local charity is calling on all in Galway on the day to don the togs and the t-shirt and hop into the sea at Blackrock, Salthill to raise much needed funds for COPE Galway services.
COPE Galway Community Fundraiser, Marie Anne Michel commented, “The COPE Galway Christmas Day Swim has become a real tradition over the years. We’ve seen hundreds of friends, family, neighbours and visitors meeting up and taking the plunge together in our name as an annual prelude to their Christmas Day festivities. This year’s swim promises to be bigger and better than ever and a wonderful way for family & friends to come together Christmas morning to remember local people in Galway who need your support. We look forward to greeting all who take part with a hot drink and a bit of festive fun at Blackrock on the day – all are welcome.”
