With just over a week to go before the big day, GOAL is encouraging more schools and organisations in Meath to sign up for GOAL Jersey Day on Friday 11th October.
Children and workers from across the county are already taking part, and will be wearing their favourite jersey to school or work for the day to raise money for GOAL.
Navan Educate Together NS, Rathbeggan NS in Dunshaughlin and Scoil Cholmchille in Tara are just some of the schools that have already signed up, while staff in Alfco Farm Services, Regan McEntee and Partners and the Office of Public Works in Trim are also taking part, along with all AIB, FBD and Ulster Bank branches throughout the county.
However, it’s still not too late for others students and workers to join in the fun, according to GOAL CEO, Barry Andrews.
He said: “One of the reasons why GOAL Jersey Day is so popular is that it is so easy to organise,” he said. “All you have to do is sign up, spread the word in your school, college or workplace, wear your favourite jersey for the day and make a small donation to GOAL. It’s that easy.”
All proceeds from the event will be used to fund GOAL’s programmes in 13 countries across three continents, where it continues to assist hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people. The organisation is one of a small number of aid agencies working inside Syria, providing families who have been forced from their homes with food and other basic necessities.
To register for GOAL Jersey Day and receive a start-up pack, call GOAL now at (01) 2809 779, or email email@example.com. For more information on the work that GOAL does in the developing world, visit www.goal.ie.
