Women’s Mini Marathon
Two staff members Susan Nevin and Gemma Flood plus client Breda Scanlon took part in the women’s mini marathon in aid of the Nethercross Day Care Centre.
Breda participated in a wheelchair pushed along by family member Paddy Scanlon who, with the help of the other participants, made it across the finish line.
Between the group they raised over a €1,000 for the Nethercross Day Care Centre.
Congratulations and well done to all.
Newbridge Farm Visit
Nethercross also brought groups of clients on outings to Newbridge Farm a number of mornings in June. The weather was fantastic, and it was fun to see the large variety of animals at the farm, where our intrepid visitors fed the ducks and found the pigs particularly smelly. The visit gave everyone an opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors and experience farm life first-hand. The event brought back a lot of memories for those who had been raised and worked on farms and all had a great day out. The group then travelled onto the Waterside Hotel in Donabate for dinner and where well looked after by all the staff. The lunch was excellent and the views of the beach were magical.
