St Comgall’s GAA Club raised a fantastic £2,043.20 from ‘Walk a Mile in My Shoes’, a blindfolded walk around Antrim Castle Gardens.

This joint fundraiser, organised by Ritchie Leahy, split the £2,043.20 raised equally between St Comgall’s GAA Club and the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).

Ritchie said: “Walk a Mile in My Shoes was a great way to increase understanding of sight loss among our young people and fundraise too.

“We would like to thank everyone who took part.”

Esther Sands, RNIB Antrim Fundraising Group, said: “Everyone had a great day and we are thrilled that St Comgall’s GAA Club organised this event to not only raise vital funds, but to raise awareness about the challenges that people with sight loss face.”
