Hard Metal swings into action to help communities

Hard Metal is proud to announce our support for three fantastic community and charity events later this month. We’re partnering an incredible challenge to Row-A-Round Ireland, we’re getting behind the Irish Steam Engine Owners Association 2015 Road Run, and we'll be getting into the swing of summer at the annual Sixmilebridge Camogie Club Golf Classic. Row-A-Round Ireland involves a team of 20 rowers who will (two rowers at a time) endeavour to safely row a 15ft skiff around the entire coast of Ireland (just short of 1000 nautical miles), starting and finishing in Bray, Co Wicklow.
The Row-A-Round team launches their challenge on May 30th

The Row-A-Round team launches their challenge on May 30th

The brainchild of maritime enthusiast, Ger Crowley, they set off on May 30th and it is anticipated that this inspiring challenge will take around four months to complete and raise as much as €100,000 for Cystic Fibrosis Ireland. It is hoped that coastal communities around the country will turn out to support the Row-A-Round team, who face a significant physical and mental challenge as they try to complete around 20 miles a day while being bounced by waves and buffeted by the weather.

Sixmilebridge Camogie logoAround 50 teams are expected to take part in the Sixmilebridge Camogie Club Golf Classic at East Clare Golf Club on 22nd & 23rd May. Everyone at Hard Metal is confident that our 'dream team' of Stuart Arbuckle, Billy Robertson, David Sherlock and Alan Hehir will be in the running for some of the many prizes on offer during the day - so no pressure lads! As well as entering a team, Hard Metal will also be sponsoring a tee box at the event, which is one of the club’s primary fundraisers. The Camogie Club is at the forefront of encouraging female participation in sport in their locality with coaching beginning at under 6 years of age right up to the senior team. More than 150 girls play camogie at the club, competing across 12 different age groups.

The Irish Steam Engine Owners Association 2015 Road Run is in aid of Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland

The Irish Steam Engine Owners Association 2015 Road Run is a wonderful and charming event which starts at Toughers in Naas, Co Kildare, on May 23rd and finishes in Halfway, Co Cork, on May 30th. This year it is in aid of Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Ireland and the ‘Help Emma Beat it Fund’, which raises money to help pay for medical treatment in the United States for 18-year-old Emma Naughton-Heavey, from Moyvilla, Oranmore, Co Galway, who suffers from a very rare form of cancer called Fibrolamellar Hepatocellular Carcinoma.

Hard Metal is proud to contribute to such worthy causes and encourages others who are able to do the same.
