Rovers help with Surf 4 All Summer Camp

Members of the Sligo Rovers squad attended Sligo’s Surf 4 All Summer Camp at Streedagh Beach on Tuesday.

Surf4All Sligo have been putting on a fantastic five day event at Streedagh making surfing accessible to young people with autism.

It is all done with the help of volunteers, so our players swapped the training pitch for the beach after their victory over UCD on Monday night.

The camp, which was in it’s second day, will cater for 21 children with autism this week, and is ran in conjunction with Sligo Sport & recreation partnership as well as Sligo Autism Service and Surf Ireland.

CEO Colin Feehily: “We were delighted to be able to give up some time and help out at the summer camp.

“The lads who took part really enjoyed it and it was great to see the kids enjoy it too. As a club we try and give something back in the community, and this is something we will continue to do in the future.

“There are some fantastic initiatives on going in the county, and the region, and it was a pleasure to be involved.”
