Lip Sync Blaa-tle Night Raises Funds for Tramore Cliff and Mountain Rescue Team

The Tramore based Team would like to thank all that fundraised and donated to the recently held "Lip Sync Blaa-tle" charity fundraiser night in the Dome in WIT. This was the second year of the fundraiser and was held in memory of Trevor Sinnott who passed away a few years ago. The night consisted of 12 acts getting on stage, miming a song of their choice and putting on a performance with it. The audience then voted who they wanted to win. Money was raised from ticket sales, sponsorship cards, raffle and votes. From the whole night, €6057 was raised for different charities / organisations like Dunmore East RNLI, Pieta House, Waterford Musical Society, Johnville FC, Bring Ava Home, Gealscoil na nDeise, Ballyduff FC, and Tramore Cliff and Mountain Rescue benefited.

The Tramore Cliff and Waterford Mountain Rescue Team was established in 1978 and is entering it's 40th year in 2018 so the funds are very welcome. The team provides a 24/7 voluntary emergency Cliff and Mountain rescue service to the Coastal area of Waterford, the Mountains of Waterford, and the newly opened Greenway. The team is currently recruiting new members contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more details.
