SHADES 2010 - Roy Keane launches our major fundraiser of the year ....
Posted Apr 29 2010 2:46pm
Roy Keane, Ireland's former international soccer captain, ex Manchester United captain and current manager of Ipswich (soon to be Celtic manager!) launched the annual SHADES campaign for Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind today in Dublin .... He was very kind to Murray and Sorcha and signed a special autograph for one of Sorcha's friends who is very sick at the moment and is a huge fan! I sat in front of some of the posters - Supervalu are sponsoring SHADES this year - which is fantastic as there are so many Supervalu shops around the country! Remember to drop in and buy a SHADES pin if you're reading this and live in Ireland! Meeting Roy was great but there were lots of really interesting dogs there - so my attention kind of wandered! There were lots of puppies in training .... German Shepherd/Golden Retriever crosses ... Labadors, Labadoodles .... A beautiful Golden Retriever called Madge that reminded us so much of Max! and this incredibly cute seven week old puppy - Woody! He was so gorgerous!
Remember SHADES week is from May 3rd to May 9th - but Supervalu are supporting us and selling SHADES pins for the whole month of May!
