Muckalee Community Centre- will hold a church gate collection on Saturday, 14th July and Sunday 15th July. The centre is used regularly for meetings by Hurling, Football, Camogie, Faroige and History clubs. It is also used for racquetball, handball, circuit training, aerobics and yoga classes, funeral catering and family gatherings. Families also avail of the use of tables and chairs for private parties, ie 1st Communions, etc.
As many of these do not generate funds for the centre, it is necessary to run a number of fundraising events throughout the year in order to cover the cost of insurance, maintenance, upkeep and repairs.
The centre is an integral part of the community and is a facility for all ages. Your support and generosity for the church gate collection would be gratefully appreciated. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who supported the recent school walk which raised a total of €2,429.89 – shared with Muckalee Primary School.
