Fundraising efforts for the Paulstown Goresbridge Community Sports Park continue in earnest with their launch of the All County Draw last week. The top prize is a new Kia Picanto (Value €13,000) or €10,000 in cash, and committee members and volunteers commenced this funding phase in early September for this exciting new development.
Full planning permission for the Paulstown Goresbridge Community Sports Park was granted in June and the club is on target to secure the additional seven acres adjacent to the existing sports field by year end.
The All County Draw will involve committee members and volunteers traversing the entire county up to the third week of December with the Grand Draw scheduled for Saturday the 21st of December in the Lord Bagnal Hotel in neighbouring Leighlinbridge. Please support this great cause.
