Local Vet Neal Breen jumps for joy at raising over one thousand pounds for local charity! The Causeway Coast Dog Rescue recently attended the Wild Geese Skydive Club in Garvagh to watch one of the vets from the Roe Valley Veterinary Clinic in Limavady jump from the sky to raise money for the charity, a staggering £1056.60! Neal Breen decided that as he worked closely with the charity helping to improve the health and wellbeing of every dog rescued before it is rehomed, he wanted to go that little bit further and raise some funds for the charity himself!
Neal took a huge step, and straight onto one of the Wild Geese’s flights to prepare for the tandem jump with one of the Club’s members who also supported the Charity by kindly donating the Sky Dive for Neal to complete.
Chairman of the Charity Maggie Dimsdale-Bobby said, “this is an amazing thing to do for the charity, as we have some brilliant volunteers who bag pack, run marathons and hold coffee mornings, but jumping from the skies is definitely going that extra mile, one that many wouldn’t want to take!! He has definitely done an amazing job with raising over one thousand pounds as we firmly believe that every dog deserves a second chance. The charity does not receive any funding from government bodies and with the increase in calls to take in unwanted dogs, every penny counts from fundraisers like Neal. We had a great time as we all went down to cheer him on as he made the jump from the aircraft and landed safely beside us!
“On behalf of the Causeway Coast Dog Rescue, a huge thank you to the Wild Geese Skydiving Club in Garvagh, but an extra special thank you for Neal, both for all the work he does with the charity in helping the dogs we rescue, but especially for taking that leap of faith from the sky and raising so much money. We congratulate him on his achievement and for being presented his certificate from the skydiving club.
The charity is funded through donations such as those received from Neal and from kind volunteers helping the charity. For more information go to www.causewaycoastdogrescue.org @CCDogRescue or facebook/causewaycoastdogrescue.
