Spraoi agus Spórt Valentine’s appeal: ‘You can’t lockdown love!’ 27.01.21

SPRAOÍ agus Spórt has launched a new fundraising appeal in the run-up to Valentine’s Day. The funds raised will enable the Carndonagh based social enterprise to continue providing its vital services for children, teenagers and families throughout Inishowen during the Coronavirus pandemic.
As part of the new Valentine’s fundraising appeal, staff and volunteers from the charity have been busy creating unique, personalised gifts at their FabLab facility. These include Valentine’s Day magnets and postcards with the messages ‘You can’t lockdown love’ and ‘Staying apart but still in my heart’. They have also launched a new online Valentine’s Draw with some great prizes up for grabs.

All proceeds raised from the Valentine’s fundraising appeal will go towards sustaining the Inishowen Food Bank, providing alternative respite for children and teenagers with a disability and/or autism, counselling rooms for the provision of mental health supports for children and young people and school-aged childcare for essential and frontline workers.

Manager of Spraoi agus Spórt, Eimear McLaughlin said: “As seeing our loved ones in person may not be possible this February, we wanted to provide a unique, personalised way for people to send special messages of love to them this Valentine’s Day.
“All of our gifts, including our Valentine’s magnets and postcards, can be personalised with names and can be delivered direct to their door so that you can ‘share the love’ with that special person in your life.
“We also feel that this year, of all years, it is so important to send special messages to the people closest to us in our lives – such as ‘You can’t lockdown love’ or ‘Staying apart but still in my heart’.
“I’d therefore encourage as many people as possible to view and purchase our unique, personalised gifts by visiting our Facebook page or our website ."
