A busy Weekend

Tuesday 15th August 2017
On Sunday, Samaritans were involved in many area's of Kilkenny, read on to find out more..

What a marvellous, busy Sunday. Our Fundraising Event at Kilkenny Car Boot Sale went fabulously, and a Huge Thank You to everyone out there who participated in whatever way they could. We are a charity, and it is your generous donations that keep us there to answer to the people who contact us when they need us most. So Thank you.

Then,

"Kilkenny Samaritans U17 Camogie team took part in a final training session in the fantastic setting of Nowlan Park in order to finalise preparation for their upcoming All Ireland competition which will take place next Saturday Aug 19 in University College Limerick . 

"The players were put through there paces by Kilkenny trainer Damian Donohue and on behalf of all the players I would like to thank Ned Quinn and Jimmy Welsh for giving the girls a fantastic opportunity to train in Nowlan Park" .
Our U17 squad this year is proud to be joined with the Samaritans and all the players will we hope become young ambassadors for this great charity as well as future senior stars for the county senior team . (see photograph)"
 
And finally, we took to the streets as planned in our bright green t-shirts to spread the word. It was amazing. The local people were in high spirits and were eager to engage, which is great. We had a lovely time strolling around, and hopefully, among the crowds of people we engaged with or along the pathways we walked up and down, someone who really needed to know we are here, saw us.
We all agreed, we are going to spread the word, just as we did on sunday, much much more.
