Nurney national school who along with our partners St John’s church and Nurney villa soccer club are fundraising at the ploughing with a draw with a holiday theme. We ve a €2000 holiday voucher, a bbq, a stena line voucher for a ferry trip and a hamper of local artisan products. We re located at catering area A near gate 5 and have lots of local prizes each day.
Our goal is 2 fold. Theres the money aspect – the school uses the funds like most to break down the costs of buses, extra curricular etc for families, the church needs on going maintenance and the soccer club (longest established in the carlow league) is buying and developing a new pitch and walking track in the village – we don’t have much else here! So the money will be gladly recieved. But as important to us is the coming together of the 3 main things in our community and the building of relationships between people and giving a sense of purpose and direction to a rural area.
