In these challenging times when fund-raising opportunities are very limited, Donabate Portrane Men’s Shed was delighted recently to receive a cheque for nearly €350 from the Tesco Community Fund. This much-needed money was used to buy essential materials for work at our plot at Turvey Allotments in preparation for the beginning of the growing season.
We are still hopeful of renting a second plot from Fingal County Council where we will have room for a polytunnel for propagation, where we can grow plants from seed, preferably our own, for later planting out. This will reduce the costs of growing ever more produce and provide even more openings for members to work productively together. If you are interested in joining Donabate Portrane Men’s Shed, please call Jim on 086-3694416.
