Christmas run to Fota 2014

Postby swampette » Tue Nov 18, 2014 11:40 pm

Hi guys,
It's just a few weeks to Christmas and with that , it's time for the annual Cork City Hospitals Children's Club run to Fota House! Every year we get asked to take part in this event and every year we have a great turnout. There are three runs and they are midweek which I know means that it's a little trickier for people to get the time off work etc but all of this effort is so much appreciated by the children , parents and the MCOI too ! Below I will list the days, times and pick up points for all three runs. Like I said , I do know how hard it is for people to get the time off work so if you can do any of the runs or indeed all, it will be amazing ! Just to give you the details - once you have arrived at the pick up point, Denis will assign you a child and a volunteer or parent depending on your mini's capacity. Once all the cars have been filled the convoy will be guided by a Garda escort down to Fota house where you will drop your cargo off ! Here you are more than welcome to stay and have breakfast/lunch with all the volunteers before you hit the road - all provided by the Cork City Children's Hospital Club. Fancy dress and/or balloons / Santa hats are optional too !
So in advance thanks a million to anyone of you that are able to take part- if you can let me know which specific runs you can do either by text or below this thread , or if you need any further info please give me a ring on 086 7809456 .
Thanks a million guys ,
Sarah xx

Thursday 4th December - 8.30am from the Cork University Hospital
Thursday 4th December - 1.30pn from the Cork Deaf Association , McCurtain st
Friday 5th December - 8.30am from the Mercy Hospital

Hi guys ! Just want to say a huge thanks to everyone who helped out over the last two days for this event ! We had a great turnout despite it being a midweek event ! I think it was plain to see that that children get such a kick out of being driven down to fota in the minis and it definitely makes it all worthwhile, as well as making it extra special for them . So thanks again , we all really appreciate it and I got a message from Denis who coordinates the transport side of things every year , just to thank all of us for supporting him and the club !
PS if anyone has any photos from the two days don't forget to put them up on here ... I think there was a few interesting shots of Tigger travelling in Sineads cabrio !! Cheers guys , Sarah xx

Found memories of both a Beta Coupe and a Fiat X/19.
