Following its huge success last year, ACT for Meningitis and Rosabel’s Rooms are coming together again for Swim2Remember in honour of Aoibhe Carroll and Rosabel Monroe.
Friends and supporters of the two charities are invited to gather at Blackrock Tower in Salthill, and in other locations on Sunday Oct 1st between 11-1 to remember two little girls and to support the important legacies created by their parents.
On the same evening award winning, folk-fusion singer and songwriter Emma Langford will take to the stage at Monroes Galway in aid of both causes.
All funds raised at the swim and at the evening event will be shared between the two Galway born charities, both of whom are delivering vital and dynamic services at a national level.
ACT for Meningitis is a national support & awareness charity based in Galway who are working to save lives through greater disease awareness, while providing free support services to anyone in the country who has been affected by meningitis. The charity was set up in 2011 by Siobhan & Noel Carroll following the loss of their daughter Aoibhe, aged 4 to meningitis.
Rosabel’s Rooms is a national initiative supporting bereaved parents and families around Ireland. This child loss charity works in collaboration with Irish Hospice Foundation, providing financial and therapeutic support to families bereaved by the death of a child or young person up to 21 years, no matter what the cause of death. Rosabel’s Rooms was established by Dr. Suzanne McClean and Gary Monroe following the sudden and unexpected death of their beloved little girl, Rosabel, aged 16 months.
