Last Sunday, our Annual Open Day in aid of and in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Western Care Association was a MASSIVE success! We were blessed with great weather, a great turnout, great atmosphere, great entertainment, great craic and a really great charity.
We are delighted to announce that €10,000 was raised through the event for Western Care. Both Western Care and Westport House would like to thank all of the people who gave generously to all the bucket shakers and in the raffle – instead of paying for admission to Westport House on the day.
An event like this doesn’t happen on its own and so its important to thank all of the hard-working folks who made it happen. Raising €10,000 would not have been possible without the support, help and hard work of the following folks:
- The Browne Family – Lady Altamont and daughters Sheelyn and Karen Browne (joint managing directors of Westport House) who very generously opened the award-winning Westport House & all of the rides and attractions in the Pirate Advenure Park for FREE
- The whole team at Westport House who made sure that everything ran smoothly
- Joe Brett from Western Care for coordinating all of the signage, volunteers and millions of the details behind this event
- The team at Westport House’s onsite adventure partners – The Adventure Islands and Adventure West for offering zipwire rides and the high ropes frame
- The musicians who provided wonderful entertainment today – Cian Harrison, Niamh and David and Flat Out!
- All our volunteers who helped out today – collectors, raffle ticket sellers, face painters and car park attendants
- The Local Gardai
- Our Many Sponsors
- Everybody who attended on the day and dug deep to support with donations, purchased raffle tickets, etc.
