The organisation says volunteers are need to look after collection points in Wexford Town, Enniscorthy, Gorey, New Ross and Bunclody.

The Collection Day is the biggest annual fundraising event in aid of Special Olympics Ireland.

The money raised on the day will be used to ensure that Special Olympics Ireland can continue to realise its promise of offering people with an intellectual disability the opportunity to participate in sport in their area.

If you can't volunteer on April 26, you can support Special Olympics on the day by donating to one of the street collectors or by texting the word SPECIAL to 50300 to donate €2. 100% of your €2 donation will go to Special Olympics Ireland.

For further information about Special Olympics Ireland's Collection Day and to volunteer please visit or phone Marianne Rowan at Special Olympics Leinster on 01 629 6999.
