The Collection Day is the biggest annual fundraising event in aid of Special Olympics Ireland. The money raised on the day will be used to ensure that Special Olympics Ireland can continue to realise its promise of offering people with an intellectual disability the opportunity to participate in sport in their area

Ger Deegan, regional director Special Olympics Munster said: “This is our biggest annual fundraising event so it is hugely important to us. If you have a few hours to spare on Friday, April 26 next please help us by 
joining one of our collection teams at a location near you. You don’t even need to be a registered volunteer so 
please let your family and friends know too. Every donation we 
receive will help us to 
continue to change the lives of people with an intellectual disability throughout Munster. With your help, we can all give our athletes a 
winning chance.”

If you can’t volunteer, you can support Special Olympics on the day by donating to one of our on street collectors or by texting the word SPECIAL to 50300 to donate €2 and 100% of your €2 donation will go to Special Olympics Ireland.
