There was a great team of volunteers helping out with the event.

Silvermines fundraiser success

Silvermines Playground Committee would like to thank everyone who contributed to the recent successful fundraising events held on their behalf over the weekend of May 6 and 7.

In particular we would like to thank the Independents Bikers, who ran Saturday's benefit night, provided DJ and Easter eggs for the kids on Sunday, and who have been so generous to us in terms of time and advice all along. The fundraising events at the weekend brought in a combined total of €5,350.

The benefit night consisted of music, food and dancing as well as a fantastic raffle with wonderful spot prizes. Sunday's Disco included face painting, dancing games, sensory toys, a chill out room, treats and lots and lots of fun!

Thank you so much to each and every person who contributed to making the weekend a success. To our volunteers, sponsors, the staff of Hickey's Bar, the Rambling Rosie, and everyone who made any sort of donation, thank you.

The organisers would also like to deeply commend and acknowledge the massive support we received from local businesses in terms of both spot prizes and sponsorship.

Our committee are busy working to bring this project to fruition and are excited and delighted by the level of support received to date.

Anyone wishing to make a donation, pledge support or offer advice can contact us through our social media channels by searching for ‘Silvermines Playground’ or by emailing us directly at Donations can also be made online via iDonate by searching for ‘Silvermines Playground’.

Thanks again for the support so far. Keep your eyes peeled for news of our next fundraiser!
