Over the next month volunteers from Camross Community Alert will be calling to every house in Camross Parish.
The purpose of these visits are to introduce the residents to their local Camross Community Alert volunteers, to provide residents with information on existing/future initiative eg CCTV, Text Alert, to receive feedback from you on the same, and last but not least, to collect much needed funding required to maintain existing services and initiate new services for the communities benefit.
In order to deliver a quality service we anticipate that we need to collect €20 from each household in the parish. Volunteers will provide an information pack on all aspects of the Community Alert when they call. We appreciate that €20 is a significant donation in this current economic climate. However, any donation will be gratefully received and put to the best use possible. We look forward to seeing you all in the coming weeks. Any queries phone 087 7009609, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or find us on Facebook at Camross Community Alert.
