Corrib Live returns to Galway’s Rowing Club for a sixth outing and this year’s annual music event will raise funds for COPE Galway’s Waterside House Women’s refuge. The concert is being organised and run by students from the Sound Production course in VTOS Galway.
Last year’s concert was a huge success, raising almost €1325 for Cope Galway. This year we hope to surpass even that total. The venue and equipment has been donated free of charge, and businesses across Galway have donated some fantastic spot prizes to be raffled on the night.
The Acts this year include the traditional Brazilian rhythms band, Kalanguetal, the brilliant John Nelson, Soul Singer/Songwriter Tobi Kaye and DJ JanQ will be finishing of the night with. Again all the acts on the night have donated their valuable time to the cause so we would ask that everyone support them as much as possible.
COPE Galway Waterside House is the only 24 hour accessible refuge in the Western region, providing safe accommodation, information support and court accompaniment to women and their children experiencing domestic violence. The service has strong links with a range of statutory and voluntary agencies including NUI Galway and University College Hospital Galway with regard to the delivery of training and awareness on the issue of domestic violence.
VTOS provide vocational training courses for adults who’ve been unemployed for 6 months or more, and are run by the GRETB. Eligible participants are offered the chance to return to full time training or education while retaining their social welfare benefits. All courses are certified by QQi.
