Sky’s the limit as char­ity divers pre­pare for plunge


Bray People - - Bray People -

HOL­LAND’S PUB played host to a char­ity ta­ble quiz last Tues­day night for Dive 8.

Dive 8 was set up by Bray na­tive Laura Kearns in an ef­fort to raise money for char­ity.

It was her hope that by get­ting a group of friends to­gether to take an ex­cit­ing sky dive they could also take the op­por­tu­nity to raise funds for some very de­serv­ing char­i­ties.

And so Laura and seven of her friends have come to­gether to take a sky dive in Novem­ber for three char­i­ties, Cys­tic Fi­bro­sis, CARY and Can­cer Re­search.

Dive eight con­sist of Fer­gal Mur­phy, David Nutty, Lisa Cur­ran, Adam Ben­son, Shane Grif­fin, Colin Rocket, Louise Keir­wan and Laura.

The group hope to raise ¤4,200 with have of the money go­ing to char­ity and the other half cov­er­ing the cost of the sky dives.

The ta­ble quiz proved to be a great suc­cess with Laura’s Dad Gerry as the Ta­ble Quiz mas­ter 10 teams fought it out.

Dur­ing the in­ter­val there were a num­ber of items auc­tioned off from gym equip­ment to bot­tles of wine.

A phe­nom­e­nal ¤800 was raised on the night which will cer­tainly make a dent in the to­tal needed to be raised. Dive 8 will be hold­ing a num­ber of fundrais­ers be­tween now and the time of the sky dive and they hope to re­ceive such great sup­port as they did on Tues­day.

The eight divers Kevin Con­roy, David Nulty, Lisa Cur­ran, Gavin Lynch, Laura Cur­ran, Gary Pal­lis­ter, Louise Kir­wan and Adam Ben­son.
