The National Lottery Good Causes Awards aims to celebrate the inspiring and innovative work being carried out by the thousands of individuals, organisations, groups and sports clubs all over Ireland who benefit from National Lottery Good Causes funding.
Each winner received €10,000 for their Good Cause and the overall winner was awarded €25,000 to continue their own work in their community.
The National Lottery Good Causes Awards initiative has 7 categories that projects are eligible to apply under.
Liquid Therapy is a not for profit foundation that provides ocean, surf, and water therapy for young people with physical, emotional, behavioural or intellectual needs. Good Causes funding allowed Liquid Therapy to provide further surfboards and bodysuits for its growing number of members.
