AIB Ardkeen and Waterford Healing Arts Trust (WHAT) are hosting a fundraising Spinathon at Ardkeen Stores on Friday 31st March. Volunteer spinners will be taking turns to keep the wheels spinning on two spinning bikes in the foyer of Ardkeen Stores for twelve hours from 8am -8pm. Come along and support AIB staff members, local business people and hospital staff as they sweat it out for WHAT.
All proceeds will go towards funding the ongoing arts programme of the Waterford Healing Arts Trust. The Trust brings live arts experiences to the bedsides of patients in University Hospital Waterford as well to visitors and staff of the hospital and the wider community as a means of improving the hospital experience for all.
In the words of the Acting Arts Director, Claire Meaney, “we fund-raise on a constant basis to support our activities. We hope as many people from Waterford as possible can support this event. The more people that come along and support the spinners, the better the event will be.”
According to Carol Normoyle, Branch Manager AIB Ardkeen, “The Waterford Healing Arts Trust is close to the hearts of the people of Waterford and we are delighted to support its good work. AIB as a Community Bank is thrilled to support this local initiative.”
