On the 2nd April this year, Charlie, Claire & Tiger moved mountains and got the whole country on board to support the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association. Over three and a quarter million euro was raised from the Climb With Charlie campaign was raised for us & Pieta, it was truly wonderful how all communities throughout Ireland got involved.
Last night RTÉ aired ‘Loud and Clear’ a powerful and poignant documentary on Charlie’s life, it follows Charlie & Claire on their journey of Motor Neurone Disease. It also looks at politics in his early life to Charlie’s broadcasting career including the Star Dust tragedy. Charlie & Claire talk openly about Charlie loosing his voice and how this will effect them and how Charlie does not want a robotic voice like Stephen Hawking.
The documentary also follows the journey of the Climb With Charlie Campaign. We want to take this opportunity once again to thank Charlie, Claire, Tiger & all the people of Ireland who came together to support the Climb with Charlie Campaign.
