NAGARHOPE

The SPIN event on Saturday 10th in SuperValu was a great success. It paralleled the 20 day / 1170kms Tour de Nepal cycle across Nepal by Fachtna “Doc” Clandillon and three colleagues.

We would like to sincerely thank the management of Lucan SuperValu, particularly Ian Lynam, for accommodating us. Thanks to Lucan Lions’ Ray Barnes for liaising on our behalf and to his fellow Lions who assisted on the day.

Thanks to ABC gym for the bikes; to Signlab for our great posters; to Dual Printing for all our printing; to Ken Robinson for bringing along the Brendan Martin Cup won in 2017 by Dublin Ladies’ Footballers.

Thanks to all volunteer spinners and collectors, who made the day so enjoyable in a great setting. A great community atmosphere was created by all. A special word of thanks to the boys from BNS and to the Lucan Sarsfields’ members who took part.

Thanks to all who have donated so far, directly to 191 Beech Park and also online. To date, €25000 has been raised, which will go a long way towards Fachtna’s project of building a six room primary block in Nepal, adding to the already existing preschool building in Sathikurya, a rural village in Nepal.

A huge thanks to Lucan Newsletter for their continued support and for their coverage over the past few weeks. Thanks too to Lucan Gazette, Liffey Champion and Echo newspapers.

On behalf of Fachtna and Nagarhope, go raibh míle maith agaibh go léir.

Niamh & Séamus Clandillon
