Hike for Hope 2021

Hike for Hope

Last year, our Group took part in the Hike for Hope initiative which raised over €45,000 for Pieta House. This year, the Hike for Hope is back and it’s taking place this weekend. This year’s charity is Jigsaw, the National Centre for Youth Mental Health which is a great organisation doing fantastic work. This is a challenge for all the family to enjoy
