Lecarrow Benevolent Fund launches online fundraising raffle

The Lecarrow Benevolent Fund has launched an online raffle with a first prize of €1,000 as part of its annual fundraising drive, which will also include an auction in Coffey’s Pub, Lecarrow, on Sunday, June 5th.

  Tickets for the raffle can be purchased online through iDonate, with links also available on Lecarrow Benevolent Fund’s social media pages. Prizes include a first prize of €1,000, a second prize of two nights B&B plus one evening meal in Hodson Bay Hotel, and a third prize of two nights B&B midweek in the Shamrock Lodge Hotel, Athlone. Tickets are €5 each, or five for €20.

  The fundraiser is the first event hosted by Lecarrow Benevolent Fund since 2019 and funds raised will be used to continue to provide much-needed support to those in need in the local community.

  The Lecarrow Benevolent Fund was devised when a small group of community-minded individuals came together in 2001 to assist groups and individuals in difficulty. Since then, it has raised and distributed over €400,000 for worthy causes. While a significant portion of the funds raised are distributed throughout the parish, Lecarrow Benevolent Fund has also reached out to a wider area, including Roscommon, Castlerea, Monksland, Dysart, Brideswell, Curraghboy, and Dublin.

  The Fund has also paved the way for the purchase of life-saving equipment, including the installation and maintenance costs of defibrillators throughout the area. The Fund was established with a view to assist those who may find themselves in a difficult financial position through no fault of their own or in other cases where people are facing significant costs in relation to medical treatment.

  Please support the Lecarrow Benevolent Fund Annual Raffle. Tickets are available online on iDonate.ie at idonate.ie/raffle/LecarrowBenevolentFundAnnualRaffle. The draw will take place on Monday, June 6th.
