New Years Day swim at the Boeing


All  showed  the real spirit of the community  and Christmas when our local people, young and not so old ventured into the Blackwater on New years day to raise awareness and money for the Alzheimers Society North Cork Branch.

This is our third New Years swim and we had two parts to the swim this year. Some swimmers jumped in on New Years Eve as they had a wedding to go to. Thanks lads.

Thanks to all the supporters that cheered us on. A very relaxed and enjoyable time sipping hot punch or lemonade was had by all after the swim.

The Alzheimers Society here in North Cork (Mallow Base) offers Home Care, respite care as well as a Day Care to families in need of this specialist care.

St Mary Day Care Centre in Mallow, is a dementia – specific home from home day unit for people with Alziheimers and time for families to do other  things. The environment were people with dementia feel comfortable and are stimulated.

THANKS  to all the sponsers and for all whom supported the swimmers on the day.

Thanks to Joe, from  our local Supervalue  for sponsoring the hot punch and lemonade.

Thanks to The Bridge Bar and the Bush Bar for sponsoring the Tee- shirts that were proudly worn by the swimmers on completing their task.

Thanks to Davy Tarrant and Timmy for the use of the microphone system.

All Moneys raised will stay local
