Canoe Lough Erne for the Meningitis Research Foundation

This August why not join Meningitis Research Foundation (MRF) for a charity canoe weekend along Lough Erne on Saturday, August 4 and Sunday, August 5.

You will be able to explore the wonderful meandering rivers, sheltered bays and islands full of wildlife and birdlife along your 28km journey. A night under canvas will offer the opportunity to join many locals at the Carry Bridge Hotel for stories and laughter or perhaps you would may prefer to take part in a night paddle aided by the light of the moon.

Sunday morning will see you set off for the historic town of Enniskillen with plenty of beautiful lunch spots on the way. This wonderful trip is suitable for young and old alike.

To take part, a minimum sponsorship of £150 is required which will need to be raised before the departure date. This will include one night’s camping, all relevant catering, equipment and a canoe guide. Children aged 8 years+ can take part as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

By signing up to this challenge you will be helping MRF to fund research, raise awareness and support those who have been affected by meningitis and septicaemia. Please contact Emma Collins on Tel: 028 9032 1283 or email: emma@meningitis-ni.org to register for this event.
