Michael McKay has kindly offered to be our Club Coordinator for this excellent initiative. Lets show the less well off than ourselves this Christmas how generous our Kickhams Family & Community really is! 

The collection for the Saffron Aid appeal is on the morning of the Big Christmas Breakfast on December 11th at Creggan Hall. Bring any shoe boxes up and Michael will collect them there.

Contact Michael if you have any questions on his mobile: 07875778186

A Chairde ,

At this time of year, most of us don’t realise how lucky we really are…but for some people Christmas can be just another day trying to keep warm, get enough to eat or struggling to do the most basic of things like keeping clean, brushing their teeth or putting on a clean pair of socks.

Antrim GAA, with your help would like to make it a wee bit easier for some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

This year for the first time, Antrim GAA is proud to announce the launch of #SAFFRONAID.

We would like all the clubs to get involved. We are justifiably proud, in the GAA, of our sense of community and the good work done throughout the county and the country, so on that note we want to help those who are less fortunate … with our own SHOEBOX APPEAL.

THIS IS REALLY EASY…

GET A SHOEBOX

NEXT TIME YOU’RE OUT SHOPPING PICK UP A FEW BITS AND PIECES (see list of suitable items below)

PUT THEM IN THE SHOEBOX

WRAP THE SHOEBOX

MAKE SURE YOU MAKE IT CLEAR ON THE FRONT IF THE ITEMS ARE SUITABLE FOR A MAN OR A WOMAN.

Suitable items for the shoeboxes

Shower Gel, Shampoo, Toothpaste, Toothbrushes, Mouthwash, Lip Balm, Sanitary Products, Flannels, Combs, Hairbrushes, Hand Cream, Deodorant Spray/Roll On, Chocolate, Hot Chocolate Sachets, Notepad and Pen/Pencils, Torches, Batteries, Mobile Phone Chargers, Travel First Aid Kits, Socks, Hats, Gloves, Scarves, Small Towels, Earplugs, and Eyemasks.

This list is not exhaustive, if there is anything else you can think off that would make a vulnerable person’s life just a wee bit easier at Christmas, please add to it.

We would also be very pleased to accept donations of Sleeping Bags which we will pass on to Charities that work with the homeless.
