This was the 10th year of the sponsored swim which Colman Collins undertakes every year on behalf of a registered charity selected by the Corrib Lions Club. Most of the companies supporting the swim are clients or suppliers of Colman Collins, Collins McNicholas Recruitment & HR Services Group.
The swim took place in the Ardilaun Health and Leisure Club over the calendar month of November with Colman swimming 40 lengths every day. The members of the Corrib Lions also supported the event by organising coffee mornings or selling lines. Jigsaw, which was the beneficiary of this year’s swim, also sold some lines and undertook other fund raising activities to raise awareness of the benefits of young people speaking to a qualified professional if they are feeling depressed or suicidal.
