Gardai Raise funds for Peamount

Gardai from Dublin’s P District raised funds for Peamount Healthcare through participation in the Lucozade Powerleague soccer tournament last summer and a hike along the Wicklow Way in November. Peamount Healthcare are the 2012/2013 sponsors of the Garda Women’s Volleyball Team. In recognition of this support Gardai and friends in the Dublin Region’s P District undertook to raise funds for Peamount’s services through the year. So far they have raised funds in two events and helped out during the Peamount Pulse festival last summer. Following the presentation Superintendent Wheatley and Garda Brendan O’Toole toured Peamount’s Neurological Disability Residential unit.
