Over €10,000 has been raised so far for sport in Malahide through the Malahide Sports Lotto, established just six weeks ago in a joint venture between five local sports clubs – rugby, cricket, tennis, GAA and sailing.
Already, there have been over 20 cash winners and the Jackpot is now building up to €2,750, according to Breda Melvin, one of the Sports Lotto co-ordinators.
While hundreds of sports clubs around the country already run their ‘LocalLotto’, this collaboration is unique in Ireland in that this is the first time a group of clubs in a town have come together for this purpose.
The web-based fund-raising initiative can be accessed on the dedicated website www.malahidesportslotto.com – where players nominate their club of choice as the beneficiary of their contributions.
