We are having a fundraising drive to raise €17000 for Concern by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in March and to this end are organising a series of events in the run up to the expedition.

For one of our Christmas Events we will be Carol Singing outside Anthony Ryans on Wednesday 21st December from 2.30 to 6.30pm and we are looking for some volunteers to sing with us as we serenade the shoppers! You don’t have to think of yourself as an amazing singer to join in, its more about the atmosphere and the Christmas Spirit (and of course helping a good cause)

If you can join us please email sarah on sarahlouiseotoole@yahoo.co.uk or call 087 2373531. Your participation would be very much appreciated!


PS On another note, Galway Gospel Choir are giving a concert on Friday at 8pm in the Church of the Sacred Heart in Westside. They will be performing Robert Ray’s Gospel Mass and a selection of contemporary and traditional Christmas songs. Admission is free but all donations go towards Concern.

For more information about our climb and if you can’t join the carol singing but would like to make an online donation please visit our page at


All online donations automatically receive a ticket to our Monster Mountain Raffle (with some fabulous prizes)
