Celbridge GAA Club is well on its way to getting a new gym after members raised over €6,000 in a week, from a target of €7,000.
The fundraising is for a major reboot of the club’s gym facilities, to make it relevant to the training needs of members, and players from across the four codes have come together to decide on the cost of what is needed.
The concept of the fundraiser is to purchase a floor tile for €40, with the end goal of gaining as many “tiles” as possible to tile the whole floor and also to buy much needed modern gym equipment.
Once the gym works begin, there is a commitment by all adult teams to aim to improve the current gym accessibility and scheduling to suit both female and male club members.
The club hopes this will benefit all and really appreciate the support going forward to improve the gym facilities at the club.
All adult teams within the four codes will drive fundraising within their own teams and also within their wider friend/family circles and club community.
“This is something we hope can benefit all and we will really appreciate the support going forward to improve the gym facilities at the club,” said Anna Gallagher, of the fundraising committee.
