Charity Fun Walk 2012

See more photos here.

Over 300 people participated in this year’s Carrigaline & District Lions Club charity walk from Carrigaline to Croshaven which was a fun filled family day out. The walk was led off by a celebrity line-up pictured above. Before the start, they took part in a dog handling presentation, which was given by Guide Dog Trainers from the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind, the main beneficiary of the walk. The event was kindly sponsored by PepsiCo. There was a great asmosphere as groups of friends and families walked the beautiful walkway, some taking their dogs with them for this Sunday afternoon event. A host of free entertainment kept adults and children amused including face painters, clowns and a fire engine and there was a certificate for all participants. The entertainment kicked off at 2pm in People’s Park, Carrigaline with DJ music by PJ Coogan. In the square in Crosshaven, there was a programme of entertainment from 3:30 until after 6pm with a live band. As in previous years, the Owenabue Valley Traditional Group provided entertainment along the walkway at Agamartha. A free bus service operated between Crosshaven and Carrigaline to take participating walkers back to their cars.
