Football For All started back at Dunboyne A.F.C. today at 1.30p.m. We hgood a very turnout for the first day with 14 children attending. As you all know, this Programme is offered free of charge to all Children with Special Needs. It is run on a voluntary basis by Fran Tyrrell, Eugene Dowling, and 3 Citi Bank Employees, John, Lisa and Laura. We also welcome David Beattie, as a new Volunteer, and Ben Hall will be joining us next week. We have asked The F.A.I. to place all Volunteers on a Special Needs Training Course, which will happen shortly.
Finally, we would ask that all participants to purchase the Kit for the Children. The Kit will cost €55, and will include, socks, shorts, top, and windcheater. This is the only cost that we ask for, and it is simply to make us a professional outfit, as all children will be dressed the same.
Many thanks to all involved, and please spread the word about this Programme!
