This event is being run with the assistance of volunteers from West Waterford & South Tipperary and we are grateful to Nicholas & Barbara Grubb for allowing us to use the facility known locally as Bay Lough on The Vee mountain pass between Lismore, Co. Waterford and Clogheen, Co. Tipperary. Special thanks also to the local ‘Active Hill Sheep Farmers’ group and ‘Knockmealdown Active’.
This fundraiser is kindly sponsored by Breedas Coffee Pot & Kearney Catering.
This event titled ‘Petticoat Loose’s Christmas Do’ comprises of a fully lit Christmas Tree afloat in the centre of Bay Lough for public viewing.
All proceeds will be donated to the ‘LittleBlue Hero’s Foundation’. See below for details on the fantastic work that they do!
- Little Blue Heroes Foundation is a not-for-profit charity operated entirely by volunteers (no paid staff) made up of Garda members/staff, retired Garda members, their families, friends and civic minded people from communities. It aims to help families in need from local communities in Ireland who have children undergoing long-term medical treatment for serious illness. The name ‘Little Blue Heroes’ came about when we found that the vast amount of the children we support have a strong fascination with police uniform, equipment, vehicles, Garda units, etc.. This has even led some of the children to make a wish to become an Honorary Garda and become part of the Garda family. As heroes to us with the battles they face, these children have become our Little Blue Heroes. Registered Charity Number (RCN) 20158712. -
Donations can be made via this Go Fund Me page or there will be a static collection point at the viewing area at Bay Lough.
We would ask you to kindly donate what you can and make it a Christmas to remember for these amazing kids.
We would kindly ask that anyone who is coming to view this spectacular sight would fully adhere to the current guidelines with respect to COVID-19.
