When it came to choosing a charity to support, Jacqui and the crew were moved by the positive impact of the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind, Assistance Dogs Programme. The crew of the Cork Clipper yacht have set themselves a fundraising target of €35,000 to pay for the training of an Assistance Dog for child with autism.
Jacqui is launching the Cork Clipper fundraising drive in Tralee Bay Sailing Club, Fenit, Co. Kerry on Sunday, September 6th, the first of 15 planned around the world, and has issued an invitation to anyone who's interested to come along. Sponsorship is also possible by credit or debit card through the mycharity.ie webpage
