St Stephens day 2022..

A day like… last year !.

The 2022 burn off the turkey 5k

Again, a new format this year, …. and a new beneficiary, we are delighted to announce that all proceeds from this year’s Burn Off the Turkey 5k Walk / Run will be going to the Newport Day Care Centre.

2022 will see our “TRUE COLOURS” run, this is a real battle at the border, are you brave enough to show your true colours on St Stephen’s day? 

We are looking for Families & Individuals to get out on the roads around Newport in your most festive kits in Blue & Gold, Green and White or for those sitting on the fence, a bit of Purple & Gold. 

 Dress up the dog, the husbands, the kids, get out there for a great local cause, and of course, where would we be without our leader board, again this year, we are creating a bit of banter between the locals and… those Blow ‘ins.

 When you register you will be given the option of picking a team to represent. Team Limerick, Team Tipperary, Team Rest of the World. 

 Family registration is 5 points for your team, and individual registration is 2 points.



December 26th 2021


Just step outside your front door and start.


Anytime between 9am and 4pm

What you need to do.

Put on your runners, head out your door and run/walk the 5k distance.


Our New Year plan for 2023 is to encourage more exercise and activity amongst our clients, giving everyone a happier and healthier outlook for the year ahead. We are raising funds for physiotherapy equipment for our clients to avail of at the Day Centre.

This is essential for all patrons of Newport Day Centre so that they can remain fit and maintain their mobility. Our physiotherapy schedule is tailored to meet each client’s particular needs/requirements. Our current clients thoroughly enjoy these physiotherapy sessions and look forward to them each week.

Additionally, the Day Centre is hoping to introduce chair yoga classes, so as to further improve the physical and mental health of attending clients. It will be a welcome addition that can be incorporated into our existing physiotherapy sessions.

These amazing facilities and classes will benefit all clients of the Day Centre and further extend the portfolio of vital services on offer for our elderly and vulnerable patrons.

We also have plans to develop the Day Centre buildings to introduce further services in 2023 and beyond.

We thank you for your support and for helping a great local Charity.
