The Kinvara Swimming and Life Saving Club’s Christmas Swim Fundraiser returns to Traught Beach at 1pm on 25 December to help raise much needed funds for the Galway Hospice. The 2018 fundraiser raised €2000 for the Galway Hospice, a registered charity established in 1986 to provide palliative care services for terminally ill cancer patients and their families throughout Galway. The annual Christmas Day dip is a key feature on the community calendar and will reward swimmers, paddlers and onlookers with festive hot chocolate and mulled wine (people are encouraged to bring along their own reusable cups in keeping with the goals of Plastic Free Kinvara). The Christmas Swim Fundraiser will start at 1.00pm on 25 December 2019 at Traught in Kinvara. Everyone is welcome!
