Fourth Wick­low cal­en­dar hits the shelves

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

THE fourth edi­tion of The Wick­low Cal­en­dar is out now and packed with pic­tures of beau­ti­ful Wick­low land­scapes which have been do­nated by lo­cal pho­tog­ra­phers.

The cal­en­dar will be on sale in re­tail­ers across the Gar­den County and at cancer sup­port cen­tres for €10 each.

All money raised will go straight to the seven Cancer Sup­port Cen­tres in the county and the Wick­low Hospice Foun­da­tion. This year, both West Wick­low Cancer Sup­port and Round­wood Cancer Sup­port will ben­e­fit from the funds raised for the first time.

The pro­ject was the brain­child of Mar­lena Mur­phy, who worked closely with East Coast FM for the last 12 years and has par­tic­i­pated in ev­ery East Coast FM Wick­low Wide Cof­fee Morn­ing.

The cal­en­dar is in part­ner­ship with lo­cal de­signer and pho­tog­ra­pher Richie Kelly and de­signed, co-or­di­nated and ex­e­cuted by Mar­lena Mur­phy. The duo have raised over €21,000 in the last three years since the in­au­gu­ral edi­tion and hope to raise even more funds this year for these vi­tal ser­vices in our county.

The team hope this year’s cal­en­dar will be an even big­ger suc­cess than the last three years.

Founder Mar­lena Mur­phy says ‘We were over­whelmed with how suc­cess­ful the cal­en­dar be­came over the last three years and how many coun­tries it reached.

‘It turned out to be a very pop­u­lar Christ­mas present. We are very ex­cited to fea­ture a few unique lo­ca­tions and land­marks like Glen­dasafoss Wa­ter­fall and the Pyra­mid of Arklow,’ she said.
