Kinsale Pink Ribbon Walk

Jazz singer Sharon Crosbie is to record a live version of Amazing Grace for charity later this month. An ambassador of the Kinsale Pink Ribbon Walk, Crosbie will launch details of the third annual fundraiser at the Pink Party on Friday, November 22nd at the White Lady nightclub from 8pm. She will also record her signature version of Amazing Grace on the night, which is to be released as a Christmas single to benefit the Kinsale Pink Ribbon Walk.

The walk itself will take place on Sunday, March 2nd 2014 to benefit Action Breast Cancer, a programme of the Irish Cancer Society.“The Kinsale Pink Ribbon Walk raised over €103,000 in March this year and over €102,000 in 2012 for Action Breast Cancer, a phenomenal achievement for which all participants, their sponsors and the entire community in Kinsale can all be proud,” said chairperson of the Kinsale Pink Ribbon Walk, Jackie Dawson.

“While the fundraising has been extraordinary- particularly in these difficult times – we acknowledge and sincerely thank our generous sponsors, donors and volunteers who continue to support this fantastic project. It is also a great way of fundraising while having fun and getting fit as a group.”Tickets priced at €10 are now on sale from Kinsale Pharmacy, Finishing Services and the White Lady.
