This in from the lovely Rena Rowe who sez:
The Senior Citizens group in Ballyboughal are having a major fundraising campaign at the moment. Leyna Rodgers has kindly offered to take on the gruelling SSE Airtricity Dublin City Marathon 26.2 miles on the 26th October next, Bank Holiday Monday in order to raise much needed funds for our Senior Citizens.
Sponsorship cards are available locally and every penny raised will go towards our Senior Citizens Annual Christmas Party. We would ask people in the locality to please support our very worthy cause and we especially appeal to the families of our Senior Citizens to lend a hand and take a sponsorship card and try fundraise for us. Leyna is training hard at the moment and putting in the miles and we wish her every success on the day.
We would also make an appeal to everyone out there in the Ballyboughal area if they know of any Senior Citizens who would like to join our Christmas outing please let us know as they may not be on our list. Please contact 0863667105 for further information or Sponsorship cards.
And Remember every penny helps so Please give Leyna your support.
Best of luck to Leyna and all those supporting.
