The 26-year-old will be living and working in an orphanage six hours from Guatemala city and will be based in the middle of the jungle, where it is 20 minutes by boat to the nearest village.
¢¬ÅI was looking for a something worthwhile to do and this fitted into that equation,¢¬ Danny told this week¢¬¢s Anglo-Celt newspaper.
¢¬ÅI will get a chance to experience things I might never see in life again and also to do something really worthwhile.¢¬
The Drumlane club has moved to back Danny by holding this Saturday night¢¬¢s fundraising event in Milltown, where ¢¬ËWhiskey You¢¬¢re The Divil¢¬¢ will be playing and all monies collected on the night will go to the Casa Orphanage.
Furthermore, the Drumlane goalkeeper will be covering his own expenses for the trip, so all donations on the night will be going directly to Casa Orphanage. There are also sponsorship cards available in the shops in Belturbet and Milltown, or you can pay via pay pal on www.casa-guatemala.org./tour.php.
Before Danny sets off for Guatemala on October 28, he will also aim to cycle the length of Ireland – from Mizen Head to Malin Head – which he plans to do over a five-day period from October 19th in order to raise more money for donation.
All support for him will be much appreciated.
