Shannon rowing club is the oldest rowing club in Limerick City and with a backdrop od King Johns Castle, St Mary’s Cathedral and the magnificent Shannon river there would be no more suitable venue for this Charity Art Auction

Proceeds from the event will go towards the Intercultural Youth Programme and Gorta Self Help Africa. The Intercultural Youth programme. The Zambia Intercultural Youth programme consists of 5 transition year students from John the Baptist School, Hospital, who will be travelling to Zambia in May with 2 teachers under the Alan Kerins Projects in Partnership with Gorta Self Help Africa.
As a group, these students need to raise funds to cover the cost of travel in order to make this trip. They also need to provide the charity with funding in order to make a significant social impact on the are they will be visiting
Gorta Self Help Africa’s goal is to “empower communities to shape their future”. Through raising these funds, the work will be able to continue at home for disabled children, help will be provided in local education and will contribute towards agricultural projects in the area, therefore, empowering local communities to self-sufficiency.
While this is a cash only event, all support will be greatly appreciated.
