Bag Packing a great success

Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd saw ACFR packing groceries at Tesco in Ashbourne; thanks to Tesco and to the High Street Ashbourne for the opportunity to spread the word and collect needed funds and to Alicia for all her work over the two days. Of course a special thanks to all those that contributed. The buckets were all heavy by the end of Saturday. We had packers, both ACFR members and others that pitched in to help, throughout both days and the feedback from shoppers was very positive. We don’t have the final cash count yet … stay tuned for that!

The next major event will be the operational launch which we are very hopeful will be in January. In the meantime we’re compiling data on AEDs in the Ashbourne area, like in the GAA and rugby clubs. If you know of any others, please e-mail
