Collection Day 2019

Thank you to each and every person, whether you are an athlete, a family member, a regular volunteer or someone who volunteers just for Collection Day!  It is thanks to supporters like you that we have so far raised €151,000 in the Eastern Region alone this Collection Day, with a few bits and pieces still taking place and money still coming in.  Our target for this Collection Day was €144,500 in the Eastern Region so this result is a testament to the hard work that you all put in!

I couldn't not mention our amazing supporters who donated, either online or at one of our bucket collections throughout the region.  It is support like yours that keep the Collection Day as our largest fundraiser each year, roughly bringing in 1/3 of our annual income!

Thank you all for any help that you gave, no matter how small or minor it may seem to you, it is all appreciated and so gratefully received.

If you missed any of our collections, you can still donate online by clicking the "Donate Now" button on the homepage of www.specialolympics.ie
