On Christmas Eve, over 70 swimmers – including the Monkstown CBC Senior rugby team – braved the cold waters at the National Yacht Club slipway in order to raise funds for Crumlin Children’s Hospital and King’s College Hospital. Organised by John Corcoran, this is the fifth year the event has taken place and over €35,000 has been raised for these causes.
I would like to thank members for their generosity both in time given to support John and in making donations at the Turkey Shoot, the NYC Quiz nights as well as the Commodore’s Dinner and other club events during December.
The event continues to go from strength to strength – with this year’s total already over €5,000. It is still possible to donate using this link: NYC Christmas Eve Swim – in aid of Crumlin’s Children’s Hospital – NYC
