Fundraising Table Quiz for Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team

There will be a fundraising Table Quiz for the Glen of Imaal Red Cross Mountain Rescue Team on 9th April 2010.  This is part of the celebrations to mark the ‘Turning of the Sod’ for their soon-to-be-built Rescue Base near Laragh, Co. Wicklow.

Table quiz is on Friday April 9th at 8.30pm in the lounge of the Glendalough Hotel.  There will be a raffle at the break, and it will cost €40 per a table of four people.  All of the funds raised will go towards the Rescue Team.  As an extra incentive, all teams that pre-register (before the day itself) will receive bonus points!

The team is 100% voluntary, with all members on call 24/7 to attend emergencies in the Wicklow Mountains.  There are, on average, about 50 incidents every year, and the team relies entirely on donations and grants to run this life-saving 999/112 service.
