GRCC are holding its Flag Day tomorrow Saturday 21st.
This is our first Flag Day in over 2 years and we are super excited to get out back out in the community again. Thank you to our amazing volunteers who are giving up the time to help us with this collection, we would not be able to hold it without your support. One of our Volunteers has decided to go the extra mile and came up with their own novel way of creating interest in our Flag Day collection with her 'Cut or Shave My Hair for GRCC'. That is an invitation for THE PUBLIC to cut or shave her hair and donate to our Flag Day. Sia, will be outside Brown Thomas from around 1p.m. tomorrow so pop by and show her some support along with the rest of Volunteers collecting across the City. #support #collection #tomorrow #charityheadshave #flagday #galwayrcc #galway #event #publicparticipation #headshave

Because of You, our Volunteers, GRCC has been present to enable survivors to make positive change in their lives.

Through our Fundraising Volunteers, GRCC continues to rise to the challenge that the increased demand for our services creates. Your contrubution helps reduce waiting lists, allows us to expand our Outreach Services and raise's awareness of our work and services.
