A sponsored walk by members of Youghal and Cloyne Unions has raised more than €500 for Christian Aid’s work in some of the world’s poorest communities overseas.
Last month, around 20 parishioners strolled along the new Youghal boardwalk from Redbarn to Front Strand and back. Opened in June, the 7km wooden walkway is Ireland’s longest beachfront boardwalk. The walk was organised by Youghal rector, Rev Andrew Orr.
Christian Aid Ireland Chief Executive Rosamond Bennett thanked the Youghal and Cloyne parishioners for their fundraising efforts:
We are grateful to Rev Andrew Orr, to all the walkers and to the many other parishioners who sponsored them. This fundraising walk comes at a time when Christian Aid Ireland is helping people on the frontline of the global hunger crisis – hunger that is made worse by conflict and climate change.
