Earlier posts refer to the Nessie Challenge: Well it’s all over. They came, saw and conquered.
All 18 swimmers came to post and all 18 galloped past the finishing line: what a crew!
Not even one person lost to this most unhospitable territory. In a place where even the Roman army had to turn back, this army made history. The word is that the Loch Ness Monster hasn’t been seen since!
You can donate
Got this from Trev:
I’m running a few things for 2 charities over the next few weeks. Last week a group of us swim across Loch Ness (http://nessiechallenge.blogspot.com/2008_06_01_archive.html) , this week we’re running a football competition, BBQ, raffle on Saturday ( more info : http://www.bodytonicmusic.com/football) and on August 22nd we’re running an African music night in the Bernard Shaw.
I’d really appreciate it if you could find the time and money to make a small donation to the cause . You can do it really simply online with a credit card. any amount is great , even as low as e50 😉
The 2 Charities :
Wells For Zoe – http://www.wellsforzoe.org
Welcome to Wells for Zoë, a small Irish humanitarian organisation. At present we are involved in wells and pumps for safe drinking water, rainwater harvesting, and small dams for water storage, in four rural areas of Malawi . Set up in 2005, Wells for Zoë concentrates on low cost, small scale, appropriate and sustainable water technology.
Young DJ Academy – http://www.youngdjacademy.com
The Young DJ Academy is a training organisation set up in late 2005 by Mark Finn. Mark is a youth worker with Swan Youth Services and long time music lover and dj.
The academy provides dj and music workshops in some of Irelands most disadvantaged communities through connection with local youth projects. The specific aim of involving young people in fun activity based programmes that may lead to a career in dj’ing is the academy’s mission. For some young participants these workshops are just a fun experience and chance to learn some new skills, others thrive on the experience and choose to follow a path into the world of dj’ing and performance.
the Nessie Challenge (organised by Al Coleman) was a massive success and has raised over e10k. we’d love to match or get close to that, so any help , ideas or donations you can make , please do would really appreciate it
