Thank you for braving the cold this Christmas!

The 2021 Christmas Swim was wonderful success with over 850 participants! Families, colleagues, students and friends embraced the Galway community spirit to raise funds for those in our community who need our help.

All the funds raised by the COPE Galway Christmas Swim support people in Galway who are homeless, women and children experiencing domestic abuse and older people living alone in our community.

Thank you for making a difference this Christmas!
