Major fundraiser 2018: an invitation

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.

An invitation: Friday 23rd February at 9pm

  • We ask anyone interested, or who has said she will enter a team in the 24-hour walkathon, to come and meet the committee and begin the process for this great fundraiser and social event!
  • We require 24 leaders – one for each hour – and at least 10 people to join their team and walk in each hour. We also require a team to help us with the promotion of the event on social media.
  • On the night the club will inform all what the 24 hours entail, and what sort of fundraising we hope to receive from each team.
    • We have a hurling club
    • A walking/running track
    • A Hurling Wall
    • 2 adult pitches which need developing
    • A juvenile pitch which needs developing
    • Dressing room which will be done up as part of lotto grant
    • Lighting that needs to be maintained and improved – the list is endless, but money is needed to run it all!

This sort of event has only previously done in one other GAA club – it was a great social 24 hours for their parish, as well as a great fundraiser, and we ask you all to please come along on Friday night at 9pm and support us.

Please come along and be part of this great event, on Friday night at 9pm in the clubhouse.

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.
