Crazy Hoops

Daniel, Ben, Frank and Luke had a "Crazy Hoops" business at the People's Park Market in Dun Laoghaire on Sunday, 19th July, 2009, from 11am till 1pm. The proceeds of the day went to the Feeding Centre at the Botshabelo Township in South Africa and the Kidzone Programme at Monkstown Pool and Leisure Centre.
