As members know, the club has embarked on an active campaign to secure our own facilities. We recently submitted an expression of interest to LCRL for EU funding towards an indoor training centre. This application was successful and we were given the go ahead to submit an official application to secure possible funding of €200,000. A funding condition is that the club also makes a sizeable contribution. As such we are starting a campaign to raise 100,000 Euro for the club, and a major component of this fundraising effort is a CLUB DRAW.
Thank you for the following companies who have supported our draw by purchasing a book of tickets.
1st Prize – €20,000
