LAMBAY to BULL ISLAND 24KM RELAY SWIM

LAMBAY to BULL ISLAND RELAY TEAM
Fundraising For Family Carers Ireland
Latest Update !!

Thank you for supporting the Lambay to Bull Island Relay Team and our chosen charity, Family Carers Ireland! Our swim is taking place on Saturday 9th July.

We are a team of 6 avid sea swimmers and love a good challenge, so decided to do something never done before and swim from Lambay to Bull Island in a relay team. Taking to the high seas are Aidan Hampson, Frank Cope, Dave Cherry, Sarah Mortimer (who has swam The Channel!) , Eoin Boyle and Damien Kelly.

 

This team feel their love of sea swimming can give something back to a very deserving charity - Family Carers Ireland. As a GP of 43 years, Aidan Hampson has seen too often the struggle of family carers who provide care for loved their ones with additional needs. The 24k distance of this swim highlights that a carers' day is not the standard 9 to 5, but for so many is 24 hour/365 day a year. That works out at 8670 hours a year, which we estimate will be the number of strokes it will take our team to complete the swim.

 

Aidan's inspiration personally comes from knowing the O'Donovan family from Swords. Jack, 19yrs has Cerebral Palsy and Aidan has been his GP since birth. "Jack is just one of those people that lights up any room he enters. As a society, we need to not view Jack and others as "disabled" - but to see them as the intelligent, young people they are with the same feelings and same zest for life that everyone else has. And we also need to see his family who care for him day-in, day-out and who have made him the young man he is today. Family carers go un-noticed and Family Carers Ireland have been a huge support to Jack's family. We want to give them the exposure they deserve and help raise a few bob to support other families like the O'Donovan's". 

 

Please give what you can and thank you so much from all of us for supporting this challenge. We really appreciate it!
