RUN: Great Pink Run
Due to Covid19, this year’s Great Pink Run is a virtual event taking place this weekend. And they need your support more than ever! Help them run the circumference of the globe for Breast Cancer this October. Run, jog, walk or wheel, the more KM you log, the quicker they can reach our goal of turning the world pink for Breast Cancer.

FESTIVAL: Imagine Arts Festival
Let’s focus on the positive. Because of this pandemic, festivals cannot take place in the usual manner. This means that the creativity and excitement of the Imagine Arts Festival is now accessible to everyone and not just those lucky enough to make an October trip to Waterford. With a strong online programme, as well as incorporating the John Dwyer Trad Weekend and Waterford Writers Weekend, there is something for everyone on the cards.
