Kiltale HC – major fundraiser 2018

The Club are hosting a 24-hour “Walk 2 Talk”Walkathon on the May bank holiday weekend.

24 leaders are been sought, so we have one team walking every hour. Teams can be made up of 5 to 15 people. Every team will be requested to bring a selected sum of money. Each hour will have a different theme (‘family’ or ‘fancy dress’, for example).

We hope the event will involve all in the parish, young and old. All proceeds from one designated hour will be given to a chosen charity, with every other club in the county being asked to nominate one person (and provide a donation) for that hour.

Remaining funds will be put towards the running of the club and to assist in the plans for the development in 2018. While the outstanding Lotto grant will cover renovation of the dressing rooms and fencing off the second pitch, other funds will be required for the other development of the grounds.

At some stage during the 24-hour walk or before the event TV3 will cover the proceedings – we thank those associated with TV3 for the promotion of the fundraiser.

The plan is to hold a fundraising meeting for all who wish to participate or join the organising committee. Volunteers will also be needed to take care of social media promotions, etc. If you are interested in assisting please contact Liz  at 086 1205552 and watch this space for the meeting and all that is happening.
