100% of the proceeds raised through the WLR Christmas Appeal goes directly to the Saint Vincent de Paul in Waterford to support the society’s ongoing services across our City and County.
With your help, through a variety of events and initiatives we aim to raise in excess of €80,000 for the SVP in Waterford.
Some of our biggest events include Wear Red Day, the Giving Grid and the Waterford Warriors 24 Hour Row, where 10 rowing machines will each be in action for 24 consecutive hours from 1pm on Friday 7th December to 1pm on Saturday 8th December. Every machine will be manned by a team of approximately 24 people, who will each row an average of 60 minutes.
Throughout the day, entertainment will provided within the gym, fresh pizza will be cooked by Azzuro, and there will be plenty of space for people to come down, watch and support the rowers, and if they can afford to, make a donation into one of the many buckets collecting for the SVP in Waterford.
