FANCY taking home a heifer? Or Coldplay tickets?
Well O’Brennan National School in Kielduff is preparing for its big fundraising event of the year and yes, the big prize is a freshly calved heifer to the minimum value of €1,400.
By purchasing a ticket for €10, your name will be entered into a draw for the magnificent specimen, but that’s not all.
There are a number of other fantastic prizes up for grabs like a two night midweek break at Inchydoney Island Lodge & Spa, kindly sponsored by Ballygarry House Hotel & Spa, €250 cash and two Coldplay tickets, as well as other great spot prizes.
It is all in aid of developing the play area in the school. Over the years the usual fundraising events have been undertaken, tried and tested but this year it was decided to try something new.
The animal was donated, thanks to the kindness and generosity of a number of dairy farmer families in the school, and so the fundraising efforts began.
There is a great buzz around the school and the children are looking forward to going to the mart at Gortatlea on Tuesday, March 28 next when the draw will take place.
The school is calling on past pupils, relatives and friends of pupils attending the school and indeed anyone interested in being in with a chance to win to get in contact with the school at the number below and purchase.
Tickets are also on sale through local businesses and there are three weeks left to purchase them. For further information contact O’ Brennan National School – 066 7137448 or follow us on Facebook O’ Brennan National School.
