Over the month of December Senior player Michael Foley members of Gaa Centre Darts Team were out raising money for three brilliant charities raising over €13,000 in the process.
Michael Foley selected The Temple Street Foundation as his charity and completed a 125km cycle in a Dog Outfit. Michael was due to cycle to Temple Street Hospital and back on New Year’s Day but due to Covid restrictions he had to complete his challenge around the town of Kells. At present Michael has raised just over €6,600 for this great charity. You can still donate to Michaels cause by clicking here
Our Gaa Darts Team which insists of Gaelic players of local clubs of Gaeil Colmcille, Emmet Drumbaragh and Wolfe Tones normally ran an Annual Darts Tournament in the Centre in memory of David Drew. This year due to Covid the Darts team took to the road as the team took on a 1000km run/walk within the month. David’s mother Marion chose the two Charites in which the monies were raised and Meath River Rescue and Kells SOSAD were selected. Over the course of the month the lads chalked up a total 1237km as a team and at present they have raised just over €6,650 and you can still donate by clicking here
While 2020 was a challenging year for all, the community of Kells has raised in excess of €50,000 to local Charites and well done to all.
