Gofundme Page Set Up After Cancellation Of Christmas Fair

Posted by


WITH the annual Tralee and Ballymacelligott Christmas Fair cancelled due to COVID -19 restrictions, the organisers are hoping the public can help raise much-needed funds through a gofundme page.

“Our Christmas fair is a wonderful community building and fundraising event for the Church of Ireland Parishes of Tralee, Ballymacelligott and Ballyseedy,” said a spokesperson for the organisers.

“We depend on the funds that are raised at the fair to maintain our ministry, to support the Soup Kitchen and to keep our buildings in good repair. Our Churches at Ballyseedy, Ballymacelligott and St Johns Ashe Street are an important part of the built and cultural heritage of the area.

“These are old buildings; St Johns Ashe Street is over 400 years old and the churches at Ballymacelligott and Ballyseedy are over 200 years old. The heating, insurance and ongoing maintenance costs are a big demand on a small community,” they said.

A gofundme page has now been set up to raise funds and they hope people will make a donation. The page can be accessed by clicking here.

“We are most appreciative of the support that we receive from many of our local businesses who are very generous to us, as are our parishioners, neighbours and friends in the wider community whose support enables the fair to flourish year in year out. As a small community we are sustained and encouraged by this support. We are hoping that you will continue this support this year by making a donation to our gofundmepage. Many thanks for your support and hopefully we will meet again at our Christmas fair next year,” concluded the spokesperson.
