O’GORMAN Solicitors in Limerick City this month joined in the phenomenon that is ‘Climb With Charlie’ to help raise funds for two very worthy charities, the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association and Pieta House.
Over a three-month period, the O’Gorman Solicitors team climbed local hills, Keeper Hill, 12 O’Clock Hills and Moylussa, before finishing with a flourish by climbing Carrauntoohil in Kerry last weekend.
“We decided to participate to help raise awareness of these two very important charities. It was extremely difficult for charities to fundraise during the pandemic and we are delighted to support these worthy causes,” Dan O’Gorman told the Limerick Post.
O’Gorman Solicitors also marked its thirtieth year of business this year and considers their recent fundraising efforts a fitting way to mark the anniversary. Monies raised will go to the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA) and Pieta House.
IMNDA is the only organisation of its kind in the country providing specialised services to families affected by this terminal condition. They are consistently supporting over 400 families across Ireland who otherwise would have nowhere else to turn.
Pieta, who will also benefit from the Limerick solicitors’ fundraising efforts, offers free, one-to-one counselling to anyone who may be experiencing suicidal thoughts, engaging in self-harm or who has been bereaved by suicide.
