FR. MATHEWS BASKETBALL CLUB

Letter from fundraising committee.

Dear Members,

            We hope you had a great summer and are looking forward to another exciting and successful year of basketball at Fr Mathews.

            The fundraising committee are looking for your help and support in a few areas to help in the generation of some much-needed funds for the Club in the year ahead.

  1. Parent Representatives from each team

            As the season kicks into gear the fundraising committee are looking for one or two parents from each team to act as a representative/liaison with the committee. The role would be as a point of contact to spread the word about upcoming events. Please let your coach know if you can undertake this role. It is the easiest way for us to contact all teams and make them aware of our activities and events.

  1. New Fundraising Committee Members

           The fundraising committee was formed during the last season and would very much welcome new members to help with fresh ideas and help organise upcoming fundraising events. It usually involves a monthly meeting and then some additional work around events.  We would welcome any interested parties to contact Marie at mariecollinsirl@gmail.com .

  1. Bag Pack at Supervalu Togher on Saturday 21 October                                                                                          

            Our first fundraising event of the season will be a bag pack at Supervalu, Togher on Saturday 21 October. With the last bag pack in Dunnes Stores, Douglas Court raising almost €2,000 for the club , it is a good opportunity to get the fundraising initiative off to a good start.

            We are looking for volunteers to man four tills in the store between 10am and 5.30pm. We hope to break the day into 1/1.5-hour slots. Volunteers must be over 12 years of age. We also require 1 supervisor to help volunteers at each time slot. Supervalu Togher have been very supportive of Fr Mathews in the past and we hope to continue our great relationship with them at this event. Please contact your coach if you can give us an hour of your time.

             Thank you for all you help in the past and we look forward to meeting you in the coming year.

              The Fundraising Committee.
