Waterford City River Rescue features in new Tesco video series

Waterford City River Rescue  is one of the causes highlighted in a new video campaign.

The charity features in the Tesco Community Fund One in a Million series.

The series sees broadcaster Hector Ó hEochagáin travel across the country to highlight the local heroes who have made a positive difference in communities.

The Tesco Community Fund provides financial support to good causes and community groups that matter most to its colleagues, customers, and communities across Ireland.


In the first episode of the series, Hector meets with Sinead and some of the team at Waterford City River Rescue, a non-profit organisation run by volunteers who must be prepared to respond to emergency calls on a 24-hour basis, 365 days a year, along the River Suir.

To date, the Waterford City River Rescue has received over €3,016 in funding through the Tesco Community Fund.
