We finished the night with the video made by Ronnie Quinlan to cover the fundraising events by Conor Quinlan, Woody Murphy, Joycey & Shaughs from Dead Horse Jive and Kenny from Little Cinema, where they shaved their legs, taught Joycey to swim and swam at Blackrock on the coldest day of the year! Altogether they raised over €1300 for the charity Cope!

Thanks to everyone who came along on the night and contributed by making films for the night and to all of those who took part in the raffle for Little Cinema hoodies which raised funds towards the Taking the Plunge fund.
