Every year ‘Kinvara Christmas lights’ add something new to the village Christmas light display, whilst often having to replace faulty or storm damaged lights from previous years. This year we decided to start our fundraising much earlier and try out some different fundraising ideas. In January we applied to Galway county council for a grant under the name of “Soilse Mara” meaning “lights of the sea” and are delighted to announce that we have been awarded €2000. Thanks to Councillor Joe Byrne for advice and help with the application. This was a great start to Kinvara’s 2018 fundraising.
At present we have organised a “Change drive” in most Kinvara pubs. We have fundraising jars which are clearly marked with the Kinvara Christmas lights logo for any spare or loose change you may have and wish to donate . We want to thank all the publicans for taking the containers. We plan on having many events throughout the year. Once again we would like to take this opportunity and thank you all for your continued support.
