During the months of May and June, the combined efforts of the Cill Chomáin Ladies and Mens team raised €14,234 for the Ballyglass RNLI and Cill Chomain GAA.
The monies raised were split equally, with both groups getting €7,117 each.
A “Dip, Donate, Nominate” challenge was organised for the month of May, where members of the two teams did an icy dip in the sea, donated to a gofundme page and then nominated 3 friends to carry out the challenge.
For the June Bank holiday weekend, a “24hr Row-A-Thon” was organised. During the event, members of the Cill Chomáin Ladies and Mens team as well as committee members rowed a rowing machine constantly for 24 hours, each member rowed in 20-minute slots with over 80 club members taking part. A multitude of local, national and overseas businesses kindly sponsored each rower for the event.
The Cill Chomain GAA club would like to thank everyone who took part in the unique fundraiser, all the businesses for their sponsorship and for all who donated to through the gofundme page.
