Help LARCC to paddle their canoe!

The latest innovative fundraiser for LARCC is one that will appeal to the many people in this region interested in water sports.

Lakeland Kayaks in Mullingar has donated two Atlas 2.0 Skipjak kayaks for an online raffle, and each prize includes a paddle, seat, fishing rod holder, two storage hatches, bungee storage and delivery to the two winners.

The neat, lightweight kayaks measure 9ft and have a 120kg weight capacity.

Claire Weston and Ray Carolan of Lakeland Kayaks said they are delighted to support LARCC, a charity based in Westmeath that has a national reach.

Raffle tickets are €10 or three for €20, and they are available through iDonate (search ‘kayak giveaway in aid of LARCC’). All proceeds will go to the LARCC National Cancer Retreat and Support Centre, and the winners will be announced on Monday November 22.
