Co Sligo VEC students, staff, and friends are gathering together for a fun event which is being held on Sunday 20th of May at 12 midday at Knocknarea. We are expecting a turnout of at least 500 people to form a chain around the mountain. Steve Rogers, aerial photographer will be above us on the day to capture the event in an aircraft kindly sponsored by Sligo Aero Club.
There will also be a mini-carnival in the carpark at Knocknarea with a BBQ, street performers, market stalls, musicians, and games and face-painting for any of our younger friends.
Money raised will go to a number of different charities including NW Hospice and Amy's Memorial Garden at Ballinode College.
A number of local businesses are also helping out with sponsorship
