Castleknock Intermediate Ladies Football team Solo Challenge in aid of St Francis Hospice Sat 2nd May

(01 May 2020)

We are the Castleknock Intermediate Ladies Football team and we are very much aware the impact Covid 19 is having on our country in particular local organisations. As a team we wanted to give something back to our community through an organisation that is majorly affected at this difficult time. The organisation that we have chosen is St Francis Hospice. For many people in our community, club and team, the work which St Francis Hospice performs on a daily basis is close to our hearts.

For St. Francis Hospice it is vital that they are in a position financially to continue to provide care and support for their very vulnerable patients. Covid19 is severely affecting their fundraising due to restrictions within the community with several events being cancelled.

On Saturday the 2nd of May commencing at 12am (midnight Friday), Castleknock Intermediate Ladies football team will complete a 24 hour solo challenge.
For the 24 hour period, our ladies will continuously solo the ball, passing between team members and management on the hour every hour. The 24 hour activity will be live streamed through our Instagram page @CKLadies24hrsolochallenge to keep us all accountable and to give you all some entertainment.
We acknowledge the tremendous compassion and care that is provided to people at St Francis Hospice and we feel this is our opportunity to show them our support. We have members of our team who have experienced palliative care for their family members and friends and therefore recognise its incredible lasting power at an extremely difficult time. For everything they do for the people in our community we want to thank them and help them at a challenging time. We have set a target of €1000 with 100% of the money you donate going to St Francis Hospice.

Year after year we have people supporting us on the pitch and now we would like this support to help us raise vital funds for St Francis Hospice. So please get behind us and give what you can for this incredible organisation. Follow our hashtag #24hrsolochallenge, the Castleknock GAA Instagram and Twitter page for updates. Thank you for your support - Ní neart go cur le chéile.
