Galway Daily news Return to Galway Bay for COPE Christmas Swim

Brave the cold so others don’t have to this Christmas with the COPE Galway Christmas Day Swim.

This is the 29th annual Christmas Day Swim organised by COPE, where swimmers gather in Salthill and brave the icy waters together to raise money for the most vulnerable people in our society.

Last year over 450 people took time out of there Christmas Day to take the plunge, raising €28,900 for COPE’s services in Galway.

Registration for the Christmas day Swim is €10 for one person or €30 for the family.

Anyone who wants to take the time out of the holiday season to help those who aren’t so fortunate can register online here.

The Christmas Day Swim will take place at Blackrock Pier in Salthill from 10am to 1pm.

COPE is also looking for any volunteers willing to come and shake a bucket to help raise money for a spell on Christmas between 10am and 2pm.

The charity also took to Facebook to thank everyone who has so far donated goods to be given to vulnerable families over this Christmas period.

If you want to give a little something to help out those less fortunate over the holidays, donations are still being accepted.
