Three bits of news in this email…
Firstly a reminder about the Tenth OutWest Annual River Shannon Cruise a week on Friday. Get your tickets now whilst they are still available. Twenty-five euro gets you a night of cruising, music & dancing, and even a buffet meal! Ring the OutWest info line to book your ticket (087 972 5586). Full details of the cruise are given below.
Secondly a reminder about the OutWest Clothing Appeal. If you have you any old clothing, old shoes, old bedding or other fabrics - it doesn’t really matter too much about their condition just as long as they are not soiled - OutWest will be able to recycle them to raise much needed funds for the OutWest Gay Helpline. So if you can donate such items please bring them along to any OutWest meeting (such as the Tenth Annual Shannon Cruise) and hand them to any OutWest committee member. You will be helping a very worthy cause.< /div> Thirdly a note for your diary. OutWest will be holding a fund-raising walk on Sunday 11th September. Funds raised will go towards the OutWest Gay Helpline, an essential service for many people in the West of Ireland. We shall be climbing Knocknarea in County Sligo. More details will follow closer to the time. That’s all for now - details of the cruise below (including bus and train times to Dublin for the Pride parade the next day).
