CHRISTMAS JUMPER DAY
A Big Thank you to everyone who turned out to support our Jumper Day on Tuesday 17th. We had 32 teams playing on the day and the weather was very kind to us.
We were delighted to help three charities this year.
Naas Food Bank was again very grateful to all who brought the non-perishable food in the weeks leading up to our day, Maud Nolan expressed her thanks as she accepted the food on their behalf.
Mary K O’Mahony was also very appreciative of the donation she received on behalf of Scoil Mhuire gan Smal and she told us about all the children that will benefit from it.
Joanne Fox was thankful for the food donations that will go to people in the Killenarden community and also appreciated the monetary donation which will go to the Sacred Heart Junior School in Killenarden to help some children in need.
We raised €2,200 in total for these charities which shows the character of all the members in Newlands. As always, the members of Newlands’ generosity is amazing.
