On Thursday evening last, Killarney Swimming Club was delighted to present a cheque for €1,456.00 to Kevin Griffin, on behalf of Down Syndrome Kerry.   All of the money was raised by the Club through it’s “31-day-Challenge”, which took place in January 2020, during lockdown.  Each Club member was encouraged to be active each day of that terrible January and to save one euro a day for our chosen charity – DS Kerry.  As expected, Club members rose to the challenge with gusto.

Thanking the Club for its efforts, Kevin Griffin said the money would be used to subsidise services for children with DS such as speech and language, occupational therapy and early intervention.
