Fund Raising 1
Wednesday, 21 September 2011 09:19
The first fund-raising exercise of the new season got off to a successful start when over €1,300 was raised through bag packing in Ryan's Supervalu, Grange.   We would like to thank all the junior members who participated over the four shifts on Friday night and Saturday.   Thanks also to the adult supervisors and particularly to parents June Crowley and Val Judge, for giving up chunks of their Saturday to make sure it all went well.
The money raised will help defray some of the €6,000 cost of the purchase of our five new Concept 2 rowing machines (the infamous "ergs").  This brings our total of ergs to 16 and will greatly help us to cope with the increased numbers training over the winter months.
