THAT’S A WRAP!!! The Ladies have SMASHED IT !!!! The club are justly proud of the Ladies who virtually travelled 3121.56km. Some walked, some ran, and others Cycled to virtually travel the Coastline of Ireland, in aid of#feed-the-heroes #getbehindyourlocalclub.
The ladies answered this call from the Feed the Heroes organiser:
“Since Feed The Heroes was established eight weeks ago, your support has allowed us to provide 156,971 meals to frontline staff through the COVID-19 emergency. We have delivered meals nationwide from Letterkenny to Bantry and from Castlebar to Dublin. Over that time we have spent €950,000 and delivered meals at an average cost of €7 per meal.
Our goal has been simple, to ensure that nutritious meals reach teams on the frontline: ambulance paramedics, COVID-19 swab testers, contact tracers, medical scientists, ICU teams, COVID ward teams, and support staff across hospital and nursing home care settings. It has however been so much more than just a meal, but rather a tangible expression of your support and gratitude.
Despite everyone’s generosity, we’re in danger of not being able to finish what we started. With the situation still on-going and current expenditure running at €170,000 per week, our finances are running critically short. Unless we receive extra funding, we won’t be able to sustain essential service through the end of May. That’s why we’re asking you to contribute one more time and help fund the final 25,000 meals for the incredible professionals that are spending 12-14 hours a day, 7 days a week to keep us safe and allowing us to stay home. “
Congratulations and well done to everyone involved. Swords is proud of you ladies.
