Roscommon GAA members will Shave or Dye their hair as part of a fundraising campaign for the Mayo Roscommon Hospice.

They are aiming to raise €30,000 and all the money donated will go to the Mayo Roscommon Hospice.

All 12 Hospice shops have had to close until further notice and public fundraising events have been postponed or cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions, resulting in a drop of €30,000 in income.

Members of the Roscommon GAA team, management and the backroom team will either shave or dye their hair over the next two weeks with the hope of raising €30,000 for the charity.

They will run polls across the Roscommon GAA Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts and want the public to vote on whether people should shave or dye their hair.

Donations can then be made to Help for Hospice on GoFundMe and anyone who donates €20 gets entered into a draw to win one of five signed Roscommon jerseys.

A €40 donation will receive two entries and so on. 

The panel is also offering to reach out to people who are cocooning and would enjoy a chat about GAA.

Once you’ve donated to the cause, people can private message the page with the phone number of someone who is cocooning and who would enjoy a chat about GAA with a member of the panel.
