A comic relief day put on by the staff of two Donegal companies has raised €11,000 for the RNLI stations in Ballyglass and Arranmore.
The fundraiser was staged by the staff of Swan Net-Gundry – a world renowned pelagic and white fish net manufacturer based in Killybegs – and NettingDirect.com in Kilcar which makes hand made, quality nets.
The workers and management of both companies got together to film an epic Lip Dub video to raise funds for the two busy lifeboat stations in Mayo and Donegal.
The video which has since been uploaded to YouTube includes the staff miming and rocking out to hits including Queen’s I want to break free, Dolly Parton’s 9 to 5, Rod Stewart’s Da ya think I’m sexy, The Village People’s Macho Man and even Beyonce’s anthem Single ladies (complete with some very masculine ‘Single Ladies’)!
The video has raised an astounding €11,000 for the RNLI from very generous donations.
The management want to thank any individual or company who donated money to this cause. The RNLI mascot Stormy Stan even makes an appearances in the video so you’ll have to keep an eye out for him!
