Development Draw an outstanding success!

The dates 18th September 2017 and the 27th May 2018 will be forever engrained in our minds.

252 days and over 8 months, when it appeared to many of us that time stood still. During those days approximately 100 Red Knights warriors braved all the elements that were thrown at them – over a harsh winter – as they meandered from club to club, county to county knocking doors in Tyrone, Fermanagh, Derry, Armagh, Antrim, Monaghan and Donegal and even further afield in pursuit of a sale.

Over 18,000 tickets sales later and our very challenging target of achieving £300k profit has been achieved and indeed surpassed. Everyone involved can hold their head high and push out their chests knowing that when their Club came calling they delivered in bucket loads. Raising this sort of money in such a short space of time took courage, commitment and a whole load of sacrifices but our men and women, boys and girls were not short in any of those traits.

This achievement now allows our Club to complete our ongoing development without any debt lingering over the Club on completion. Our new premises, will be one that we can all be very proud off and know that we have all played a significant part in ensuring it was put in place. The fact that it will benefit current and future generations of people in our Parish is also something we can reflect positively on.

Raising over £300k is a huge achievement and the Club is deeply indebted to all our sellers, to those who worked in the background co-ordinating our Draw, to those who provided sponsorship towards our Prize Fund and to those who bought tickets.

To the winners we congratulate you all.

A final word to our sellers and to their families who have also been burdened by this huge fund raising initiative. The history of this Club, when brought up to date will reflect very positively on your huge efforts but for now each and every one of you who sold tickets can take massive pride in a job that was really well done.
Thanks also to Tyrone GAA Chairman, Michael Kerr and Tyrone legend, Peter Cavavan for their support and attending.
