Lecarrow Youth Club supports Ukrainian children locally

Rinn Duinn Youth Club in Lecarrow recently presented twenty-two shoeboxes to the Ukrainian children staying in the Hodson Bay Hotel as part of the Foróige Youth Citizenship Programme and under the co-ordination of Roscommon LEADER Partnership.

The youth club members prepared and presented the shoeboxes and the kids’ committee spoke on behalf of the entire Rinn Duinn Youth Club. The shoebox programme was an idea suggested by the youth of the club to assist in making the Ukrainian kids feel welcomed to the community.

Rinn Duinn Youth Club caters for two age groups – 10 to 12 year olds and 12 to 17 year olds. Youth club meetings are held on Wednesday evenings in St John’s Hall, Lecarrow (6.30-7.30 pm for the younger group and 7.30-8.30 pm for the older group). The club caters for the youth in all local areas, from Roscommon to Athlone town.
