Down Syndrome fundraiser puts politicians in a spin

ANYONE who thinks that politicians do nothing should have a look at events being organised by Down Syndrome Limerick this Saturday.

Local city and county councillors, businesses and personalities have committed to get on the bikes and break a sweat at fundraising  Spinathons in Newcastle West, the Milk Market in Limerick City as well as the Jetland and Crescent Shopping Centres.

And their efforts should provide a very welcome boost for the work of the Down Syndrome community of Limerick who support families and individuals with Down Syndrome throughout their life, through a range of social, education and development activities.

Gyms, schools, colleges or companies are invited to run their own Spinathons.

For those who can’t make it to the event, donations can be made online here
