Fundraiser Clothing Collection

O’Dempseys are holding a funraiser clothing collection on this coming Saturday, August 23.

Items accepted are clean re-wearable clothing, blankets, bed linen, curtains, towels, paired shoes, handbags, belts and soft toys are accepted (no other toys), books (no school books, text diaries or magazines).

Each 10kg bag donated will raise funds for the club. I would encourage everyone to try and donate as many bags as possible. Perhaps it’s time to rummage through your wardrobes and chest of drawers or maybe you have an attic full of clothes that will never be worn, now is your chance to do a big clear out. Remember each bag you bring is like a donation to the club.

Bags of clothing can be brought to O’Dempsey’s pitch from 9.30am to 11.30 am on the day of the collection or may be brought to training sessions in the week beginning August 18.

Any queries contact Catherine on 087 6306555 or any juvenile committee member.
