Irish Dogs for the Disabled One Mile Swim
Sunday 19 February 2012
On the 17th of February LeisureWorld Bishopstown participated in a 1 mile swim for Irish Dogs for the Disabled. This charity trains specially selected dogs to carry out a range of practical tasks, of which some people may not be able to do due to their disability. Some of these tasks are opening doors, picking up the morning post and emptying the washing machine, even retrieving dropped items such as a TV remote, keys or a wallet. The money raised in the charity swim will help purchase leads, collars and identity discs. LeisureWorld staff, including members of the public, participated the swim on 17th February at 1pm. The swim was completed in just less than 50 minutes and the total collected to date is €217, however, there is still money coming in from the generous public.
Those who participated in the 1 Mile Swim were:
Joanne Lenihan (LeisureWorld) / Michael Brew (LeisureWorld) / Melissa Noonan (LeisureWorld Member) / Kieran Ruane (LeisureWorld Member) Richard Tierney (LeisureWorld) / Kevin Hosford (LeisureWorld) / Gavin Lynch Frahill (LeisureWorld) / Eugene Long (LeisureWorld Member)
