The Cause:

Lakers’ Greatest Adventure – Building DreamsEmer And Pierce

We have almost 400 members with an intellectual disability in Lakers. They believe in us. More than that – they believe in themselves. They believe in their right to live a full and happy life. Full of friendship. Full of things to do. Full of ways to keep fit and strong, ways to learn new skills, way to grow and be happy. They come to Lakers for all these things. They take part in sport, in drama, in music. They cook, they do quizzes, & watch movies, they paint and draw and sculpt. They hike and swim and make all sorts of choices. They just hang out when they want to. They sit on the Board of Lakers and make the important decisions.

Now is the time for Lakers’ greatest adventure. We are going to build a world class centre for our members, the best of its kind in Ireland. It will have sports facilities, green spaces, a sensory garden, a professional kitchen, a café which will employ our members, sensory rooms, art & craftsIn The Garden rooms, as well as support facilities for families and our youth club.  It will be completely accessible and open to all who wish to use our services throughout Wicklow and its surrounding Counties”

The Project is going to cost €2.5 million. Thanks to the amazing support of the community, we have raised just over €500,000 and have been donated €1 million from a very generous donor, but we need to raise a further 1 million euro to reach our €2.5 million goal to make sure we have all the facilities and services our members need and deserve” : Fergus Finlay Chairman
