TESCO SCHEME- THE BIG PUSH

Our Sports Hall and Den are one of three projects taking part in the current TESCO Community Support Schemes. This particular set will probably end this week and €500 will be divided in proportion to the number of blue discs in each box.  Our box and another have just commenced a third fill. Every euro counts and I would ask all to support our box this weekend and until completed by taking and putting in as many discs as possible after payment at checkout- including unmanned checkout. Please text or forward this to all your members.Padraig Griffin
