Annual Collection Day 5th April 2019

The Special Olympics Annual Collection Day is the biggest fundraising day of the year and it could not happen without the support of the hundreds of volunteers who take to the streets across the country. The support of the general public is humbling, their generosity and kind words to the athletes and volunteers is what inspires everyone to continue to work hard and transform the lives of so many athletes. 

In 2018 you helped us to raise an amazing €500,000!  None of this could be achieved without YOUR support, THANK YOU!!!

Thank you to everyone who supported this day.
