CLG Dhún na nGall Fundraising Committee are heading for a Fundraising weekend with a difference on Fri 7th Dec in Dublin and Sat 8th Dec in London.
The event in Dublin has SOLD OUT , and the London Function is expected to follow a similar pattern in the next few weeks.
The visiting group are being led by the County Chairman Mick Mc Grath who is also the Chairman of the Fundraising Committee.
When asked this week to comment on the venture Mc Grath outlined County Committees gratitude to the Donegal people in both Dublin and London, who are working with fantastic commitment and support towards raising funds to support the funding of our Training squads and our Structural Development at Convoy.
The idea came from discussions between all bodies which took place in mid summer.
December is really the only month where our players and management were available to commit to travel, and the organizing committees saw the positive potential, in having some of our current and past players, available to attend.
Mick Mc Grath added that the major milestone in this project is that Donegal supporters living in both cities are the workforce in attaining the success in the Fundraising.
We have created their own supportive identity in naming
the London Committee….. TEAM DONEGAL….. and the Dublin Committee…….. CLUB DONEGAL.
With the support of similarly minded Donegal people at home and abroad, we intend to identify other areas where we can gain financial support towards our overall objectives. Plans are currently taking place on announcing a similar Fundraising Function in the County in the new year.
The committee have also launched a support mechanism for our supporters who wish to contribute towards our new Training Centre in Convoy.
Those contributing towards the project can purchase a 100e bric draw
( see details on Donegalgaa.ie/brick ) it’s simply “” Buy a Bric “” and your name goes up on our website bric wall. This is a direct way of recognizing those who contribute.
This contribution can be made online, and Donegal’s Central Council Delegate. Séamus O Domhnaill has a hard working team on the ground driving this campaign.
It’s envisaged that the steel frame shall be in place by the end of this month, as Donegal’s new GAA Training Centre is developed out of the ground, for all to see.
