Indoor Astro Turf
playing area is now complete, the club needs to raise €75000 to bring our
indoor astro turf complex to completion (heating, electrics, toilets, dressing
room, kitchen, meeting room etc.). In this regard, the club will require the
generosity of the community: individuals, families and businesses, both at home
and abroad. As previously advertised, you can sponsor a brick at €100, a block
at €250 or a wall at €1500. The official launch of our fundraising efforts took
place last weekend, and there will be a draw for cash prizes of €1000 and €500
for those who donate prior to the May Bank Holiday weekend. There will be teams
in the various areas/townlands to contact to donate, and there will also be
weekly collection points held around the parish to facilitate people who wish
to donate. This week on Monday (March 20th) there will be a
collection evening in Gilroy’s, Enniscrone from 8pm to 10pm. Further details of
other payment methods online will be made available this week. Your support at
this extraordinary time in the club’s history is greatly appreciated.
