June Update

Clare Crusaders would like to thank the Pakie Ryan Memorial Run for the cheque of €12,500 which we received following their successful 2012 run. The Pakie Ryan Run has raised over €100,000 for various charities over the past 3 year with Clare Crusaders receiving over €30,000 in this period. We are very grateful to have been chosen as one of the charites again this year. Thank you! 

Special Award

In the annual Co-operation Ireland All-Island Pride of Place Awards announced at the gala ceremony in Gorey, County Wexford on Saturday (5 November 2011). The Clare Crusaders won a Special Award , the judges said that the organisation provided excellent and comprehensive range of services on a timely basis, which are provided free of charge to hard pressed parents of children with special needs. The judges were just in awe of what is being achieved here on a modest annual budget. To maintain existing services and therapies the group relies solely on fundraising and personal donations.
