A charity table quiz, to raise funds for ISPCC, the Special Olympics Ireland, and the National Youth Foundation takes place on Tuesday July 21 at 8pm at the Loft at Seven, Bridge Street.
Galway women Katie O'Neill and Aoife O'Flynn are taking part in the 15km Tour de Picnic run in September to raise money for the charities. "These charities have seen recent cuts in government funding and have become hugely reliant on donations," said O'Neill. "It is important to support them so they can continue their great work."
Tour de Picnic is working with Childline (ISPCC ) to raise funds to support the services it provides to children and teens. Staff and volunteers work to empower, support, and protect young people through free and confidential phone, text, and online services. The funds donated to Special Olympics will contribute to the cost of sending Team Ireland to participate in the Special Olympics World Summer Games in LA from July 25 to August 2.
