DERMOT DURACK of the 5th Port Dollymount Sea Scouts talks to Noel McGuinness about the forthcoming Tom Crean Sponsored Walk.
The funds raised by the walk will all go to St Francis Hospice in Raheny, where one of the troop’s leaders passed away last year.
Usually, the Sea Scouts put their fund-raising efforts towards financing their own activities. However, as a mark of respect to their lost leader, they decided to change things around this year.
This Saturday’s event also marks the 100th anniversary of Tom Crean’s famous Arctic rescue walk, and so a sponsored walk seemed appropriate.
