The annual ‘flag day’ fund raiser for the Kilkenny Sub Aqua Search and Rescue Club takes place this weekend.
From this Friday morning club volunteers will hold collections at the Tholsel on High St, as well as the car park entrance to Dunnes Stores, Loughboy Shopping Centre and outside Eurospar in the Newpark Shopping Centre. Members will also be collecting in the city’s pubs on Friday night.
The Kilkenny Sub Aqua Search and Rescue Club plays a vital role in providing back up and assistance to the Gardai and State rescue services in river, lake and sea search operations across the southeast.
The annual ‘flag day’ is the primary fund raiser for the club and the monies collected are used to fund the purchase and upkeep of boats and other essential equipment.
