Charity ride-out for Open Door

Open Door Day Care Centre was supported by a charity ride-out which was held recently in Ballinaclash.
Organiser Albert Webster presented a cheque from the event to Open Door members Alice O'Mahony and Freda Kiernan.
They were delighted to accept €1,516.87 at the centre last week.
Almost 50 riders and their horses trekked through the beautiful Wicklow countryside taking in views of the snow-capped mountains and Ireland's longest glacier valley in Glenmalure. The money was raised through entry fees, sponsorship and a raffle.
Open Door would like to sincerely thank Albert Webster and Nicola Lawlor for their hard work organising this event.
The funds will be put to good use in the various activities provided for adults with physical disabilities. Thanks are also due to the land owners, sponsors, volunteers and the two and four legged participants.
