This May, we ran a special fundraising event to help us build a “Field of Dreams” for the children at Kealkill National School!
- 8 Questions
- 8 contestants chosen at random on the night
- Each contestant can win up to €2,500 in cash, making a total prize fund of €20,000!
- 2 lifelines (ask the audience & take away one wrong answer)
The 20k Drop – on 10th May at the Westlodge Hotel – was a great family night out, and an entertaining way to help raise funds for the next phase of our development here at Kealkill NS too. We used the event to raise funds for a new all-weather school pitch that will get great use in the years to come!
We’ll keep you updated as we move forward with
our pitch plans in 2019-2020!
Thanks so much to our sponsors and advertisers who gave us great support.
Play your part so we can play together!
For most of the school year, the pupils at Kealkill National School play on tarmac yards while the school’s playing field lies waterlogged and idle. With your support, we can transform this field into a year-round AstroTurf facility where the children can play safely and develop their full potential.
Every child has a great sporting ambition, whether that’s to play for Cork in an All-Ireland final, to score the winning try in a Six Nations decider, or to throw the winning ball in a basketball game.
A new AstroTurf facility
Our new AstroTurf facility will give every child the best chance to achieve their sporting dreams all year round. More importantly, we’ll be able to foster in all our children an early love of regular physical activity and play. They will develop an appreciation of all the benefits sport can bring: not just medals, but the kind of strong friendship, coordination, and teamwork skills that will stay with them for life.
How you can help
We were delighted by the support we received from our community for our 20K drop fundraiser, and we’d be grateful if you’d show your ongoing support for the fantastic sponsors and advertisers who helped us raise funds for our Field of Dreams!
We will keep you posted as we press on with our AstroTurf plans!
