Tyrone announce details of 'Laps for the Ladies' fundraiser

WITH a return to play in sight, details have been announced of a massive fundraiser that will help clubs and Tyrone ladies.

‘Laps for the Ladies’ looks set to secure much-needed funds for all clubs in the county, as well as feeding into the competitive juices again.

The initiative, launching on April 12th, the day clubs in NI are set to return to the park, will focus on supporting everyone, mentally, physically and financially, with its six week distance challenge starting on April 19th.

Details issued to clubs this week by new and enthusiastic Treasurer Aoibheann McBride will see participants representing their clubs from any part of the world, adding miles to the overall total by either walking, running, cycling or swimming.

Speaking about the novel but simple fundraiser, Aoibheann confirmed it will be a great competitive way to get the clubs involved, with the added advantage that clubs are set to boost their own coffers from day one.

“As soon as participants start registering, they generate revenue for their clubs,” she confirmed.

 “At least 50% of fees are passed on to clubs and that percentage increases as soon as a club reaches £1,000. It’s a win-win for everyone.”

‘Coming out together from Covid’ is the driver behind the initiative, welcomed by clubs and the communities.

US-based Opswat (European hub will be in Carrickmore), have Tyrone man Noel Slane as vice-President – and the company was quick to throw its weight behind the project.

‘Laps for the ladies’ is a great opportunity for Tyrone clubs to raise much-needed funds to assist with running costs in the season ahead.

Those wishing to participate can sign up through their clubs, and there’s a set of O’Neills jerseys, a set of Murphys gloves for a team, and five size 4 O’Neills match balls up for grabs.

The online registration will be launched next Monday.
