Cliffs Of Moher To Host Charity Fun Day

Funds will be raised for three Co. Clare organisations during a charity fun day at the Cliffs of Moher Experience on Saturday 27 May.


Representatives of Sláinte an Chláir, Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind (IGDB) – Clare Branch, and Brothers of Charity Services Clare travelled to the world-famous visitor attraction for the announcement of the fundraising event, which will feature live music and dancing, singing, face-painting and spot prizes. The charities will also be in attendance on the day, to meet and speak with members of the Clare public about the services that they provide.

“The upcoming fundraiser is as much as about raising local awareness of the three charities concerned as it is about generating funds to help them to deliver and invest in their services throughout Clare,” explained Geraldine Enright, director of the Cliffs of Moher Experience.

Enright continued, “The Cliffs of Moher Experience Charity of the Year programme, which was first initiated by staff in 2020, is part of the ongoing support and social-responsibility activities that help the Cliffs of Moher Experience build bridges with the local community.


“We are encouraging people from across Clare to come along on Saturday 27 May to meet with some of those delivering a range of vitally important services in communities throughout our county, as well as enjoy the fun activities taking place throughout the site,” added Enright. “Clare residents are invited to pre-book complimentary admission for the day by using the promo code CHARITYDAY23 on the website.”

Leonard Cleary, director of rural development and West Clare MD, Clare County Council, commented, “I want to pay tribute to staff at the Cliffs of Moher Experience, who have a lengthy track record of raising funds for local charities. Charity service providers have been impacted in recent years by a substantial decrease in fundraising activity, which emphasises the even greater importance that events such as the upcoming charity fun day are well supported.”

Brothers of Charity Services Clare delivers a combination of day, residential, respite and training services to people with intellectual disabilities and their families in communities across Co. Clare.

Kilnamona-based Sláinte an Chláir is a voluntary support centre that helps people affected by cancer and their families. All services are provided free of charge.

Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind (IGDB) is Ireland’s national charity dedicated to enabling people who are vision impaired and families of children with autism to achieve improved mobility and independence. In Clare, the charity is currently working with two puppy raisers, two brood holders, one assistance dog family, and two guide dog owners. All services are provided free of charge.
