This year the club’s nominated charity is Down Syndrome Limerick, based in Castletroy, which
provides essential services and programmes for members and families of all age groups. Ellen Tuffy, Chairperson of Down Syndrome Limerick (DSL), says: “We are delighted to be chosen as beneficiary for this year’s Don Reddan Annual Charity Golf Classic. DSL receives no government funding and is reliant on fundraisers like this to keep our services going so that we can continue to help people with Down syndrome achieve their full potential. A huge thank you to the Limerick Central Rotary Club for their support and in particular to Ger Lynch for all his work in organising the event. We look forward to seeing everyone on 5th May at Newcastle West Golf Club”.
