Topaz, Ireland’s largest fuel and convenience retailer, is delighted to announce that three clubs from Letterkenny, Co. Donegal, have been drawn as winners in its 2017 Cash for Clubs initiative, with a total of €15,000 being awarded across the clubs.
Topaz is the country’s largest fuel and convenience retailer with 438 sites nationwide. Being at the heart of local communities across the country, Topaz recognises the vital role that clubs of all shapes and sizes play in providing opportunities for people of every age to learn new skills, socialise and be active. Given the challenges clubs across Ireland face when it comes to vital fundraising, Topaz introduced the ‘Cash for Clubs’ scheme in 2015 to give clubs the opportunity to generate much-needed funds by harnessing the support of their members and the local community.
After signing up to ‘Cash for Clubs’, members collected tokens by fueling up at their local Topaz station. The following three Donegal clubs were randomly selected as lucky cash prize winners as part of this year’s campaign:
• €5,000 Prize Winner – Twin Towns Boxing Club
• €5,000 Prize Winner – St. Eunan’s GAA
• €5,000 Prize Winner – Letterkenny RFC
This year, over 3,000 clubs registered for the initiative. Since its launch in 2015, Cash for Clubs has awarded €400,000 in prizes to clubs nationwide.
Sinead Moriarty, Marketing and Communications Manager at Topaz, said: “Topaz Cash for Clubs was first set up in 2015 to reward the tireless work of clubs in Ireland that demonstrate commitment to their communities each day. In the third year of this initiative, we are delighted to award a cash prize of €5,000 to each of the three deserving clubs from Donegal – Twin Towns Boxing Club, St. Eunan’s GAA and Letterkenny RFC.
“With 438 service stations across the island of Ireland, Topaz is very much at the heart of Irish communities, so we are thrilled to have the chance to reward the intrinsic roles that clubs play in their communities. We would like to extend our congratulations to the three prize winning clubs from Donegal this year – we hope that the prize money will help them to make a difference to their community in the coming years.”
