flowerThank You

We have dedicated this area to pay special tribute to the extremely generous people who have made a contribution to CRY. It is because of these amazing people that CRY is able to keep our doors open as we do not receive any government funding. All at CRY would like to express our sincerest thanks to everyone who has provided us with support.

Abseiling Event in Aid of CRY

Abseil 2b     Abseil 4a

Heartfelt thanks to Karl Thompson who organised an abseiling event on 7th June in memory of and celebrating the life of his wife Linda who died suddenly on March 31st, 2016.

Thirty colleagues, friends and family completed the abseil - a tough challenge with The Adventure Agency in Dalkey, County Dublin.

A personal note from Karl:

    I would like to acknowledge what a special effort these wonderful people made on the day as most had never challenged themselves in this way before and it can be daunting the first time you complete an abseil from such a height

The incredible sum of €1,660.00 was raised and donated to Cry - huge thanks to each of the group - West City & N for their support of Karl and their generosity in fundraising for Cry - very proud to have each of you on #teamCry.
