For 14 years the RIAC / MotorSport Ireland have run the classic car Picnic in Marlay Park to support LauraLynn Children’s Hospice in Leopardstown.
As the real life event cannot be run this year due to Covid-19 the RIAC are asking everyone to take part in a ‘Virtual Picnic’.
To take part:
1) Take a photo of your car or a picnic similar to the one you might have enjoyed in Marlay.
2) Email the photos to firstname.lastname@example.org with the reference ‘picnic’ or post them to the IrishJagClub Facebook , Instagram or Twitter with the tag #VirtualPicnicInThePark and also tag LauraLynn and MotorSport Ireland on or before Wednesday, July 22nd.
3) Go to www.lauralynn.ie/donate and make a donation to the hospice with the reference ‘picnic’
A small prize will be awarded to the photo that best captures the spirit of the Picnic in the Park.
Sarah Meagher, Head of Fundraising at LauraLynn said: ”We are so grateful to the RIAC and Motorsport Ireland for supporting our work here in LauraLynn. As we navigate through this global pandemic it is so heart-warming to see supporters and fundraisers adapting their events to fit our new virtual world. Now, more than ever, every donation counts, and we want to thank all those involved in this special event for helping us to help the 220 families across Ireland who rely on our services.”
Peter Cosgrave, RIAC organiser for Picnic in the Park said: “LauraLynn is a wonderful organisation that provides compassionate care and support to children and their families. We at the RIAC have been delighted to support its efforts over the past 14 years thanks to the generosity of our members. This year is different for us all but LauraLynn needs our support more than ever. Please find in it your hearts to donate.”
