Many thanks to Dunnes Stores, especially Mary & Miles and all the girls at the tills.

Thanks to Farm Fresh Foods in Carrigtoohill who donated our buckets and to Deirdre & Sean Dorgan who secured them.

Working on the day were: Ann Worden, Karen & Rory Crowley, Imelda & Patsy Murphy, Louise Sliney, Tom Aherne, John Murphy & Marcella, Lisa O’Leary, Catherine Foley, Michelle Nagle, Emma, Ian, Hazel, Lynda Heasman, Maeve & Kirsten.

We are planning a bazaar for the last day of Surf2Heal on Aug 26th on the beach at GTown from 1pm to 5pm.

We need good quality clothing, toys, movies, wetsuits, swim wear etc. and we also need people to help. All help with sorting, collecting, selling, donating, setting up etc. would be very much appreciated. Bags and boxes needed too.

We hope to have a raffle later on that evening at the Blue Horizon so we are looking for donations (i.e. wine, time, vouchers etc.) for the raffle and ticket sellers.

Please contact Karyn Aherne at 086 175 2158 if you can help in any way.


A great day was had at Garvey's Super Valu in Cobh on Friday May 21st. Kevin and all the staff were brilliant. A big shout out to all the girls on the tills who showed us where everything was. Thanks to the girls in the cafe for the lovely coffee. The people of Cobh were extremely kind and generous. We met a new little boy who we hope will join us and hopefully found a few volunteers too. People asked us so many questions about Surf2heal and autism. It was great. Everyone made us feel so welcome. All in all a very fun day was had and we raised a total of €597.06 . Go team Surf2Heal!
