PEOPLE across Limerick are invited to take the plunge with Focus Ireland and Limerick Camogie to tackle homelessness in Ireland.
The charity is asking people to brave the cold and join Limerick Camogie players at Ringmoylan Pier, Pallaskenry for a dip on Saturday, December 2.
The event is to raise funds for Focus Ireland’s services and to support vulnerable individuals and families in need.
If Ringmoylan Pier doesn’t suit, people can still take part by taking a cold water dip in an area and at a time and date that suits them, all while still raising much-needed funds for Focus Ireland.
Lorraine Toner, Head of National Community Fundraising at Focus Ireland, expresses her enthusiasm for the event, stating: “This event is not just about taking a plunge into the sea; it’s about taking a plunge for change. It’s a call to action to end homelessness and make a real impact on the lives of those in need.”
“By participating in ‘Take The Plunge for Focus Ireland,’ you’re not only embracing the cold waters but also the opportunity to create a brighter future for individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Ireland.”
“Join us in this inspiring movement, and together, we can turn the tide on homelessness and bring warmth and hope to those in need,” she concluded.
Marian Quinn, Chairperson of Limerick Camogie added: “Limerick Camogie continue to strive towards equity and improving the standards provided to all squads.”
“The players training funds will go towards investing in the future for all players who represent their clubs and county. Last year Limerick Camogie raised a total of whopping €26,000 from their ‘Dip in December’ at Ringmoylan Pier, with 50 per cent of Donations going to Focus Ireland,” she concluded.
