Eamonn & Mary Burke’s St. Stephen’s Day Charity Swim 26/12/2021 in aid of the Liver Unit
On St. Stephen’s Day last, Eamonn & Mary Burke from Arklow along with family and supporters took to the sea at South Beach in Arklow for their 11th annual Charity Day Swim in aid of the Liver Unit here in St. Vincent’s.
Because of the Covid-19 restrictions pertaining at the time, it appeared that the event would not go ahead. However, the annual event has engendered such popular support that many participants pressed for it to proceed again this year. It did, and once again, was most successful. The proceeds from all supporters, including Rabobank’s Partnership Fund amounted to €3,905.
All proceeds as normal from this event, are devoted to the Liver Unit in St. Vincent’s, where Mary and Eamonn over many years have raised approximately €63,000. We are most indebted for this wonderful generosity.
A big Thank You also to every supporter this year and over all the years, and of course a very special thanks to Eamonn Mary and their family.
See below photos from the event and the recent cheque presentation by Eamonn & Mary.
