Special Olympics Ireland urgently requires volunteers in the Laois area to help with our charity Collection Day on Friday April 24th. Collection Day is the biggest annual fundraising event in aid of Special Olympics Ireland.

The money raised on the day will be used to ensure that Special Olympics Ireland can continue to realise its promise of offering people with an intellectual disability the opportunity to participate in sport in their area.

Special OIympics Ireland is looking for volunteers across the day, so if you can commit to the full day or even just an hour, please contact Jill Groome on 01 629 6999 or email
