St Patrick's Athletic are delighted to support Core Youth Service in their fundraising efforts by raffling the beautiful 'The Saints' bike pictured above. This Fixie Bike which comes from Funked Up in Dublin was put together by teenage Saints fans and we are sure that it will be a hit with our supporters.
'The Saints' will be raffled at half time during our SSE Airtricity League game against Sligo Rovers on the August 16. All proceeds from the raffle will go directly to Core Youth Service's 'Making Bikes and Changing Lives' campaign which will see eight young Saints' fans from Inchicore travel to Morocco to build bikes for young children in the Atlas Mountains.
This is an exciting opportunity for young people in Inchicore and a valuable opportunity for teenagers to pass on the skills that they have learned from a Bike Repair Workshop for the past couple of years.
While we at St Patrick's Athletic are no strangers to putting Inchicore on the map, we are proud to see our young supporters representing the local area abroad in such admirable fashion. As a result, we are asking all our supporters to support this raffle and help make a difference to two communities, our own local community in Inchicore and that of another also needing support in Morocco.
As Core Youth Service have themselves said, "the young people are ready to embrace the challenge" and we know they will spread the word of St Patrick's Athletic in Morocco.
Raffle tickets priced at 5 euro will be available from our Community Officer in Sweden, and from our office at 125 Emmet Road Inchicore from Monday 22nd onwards. Raffle tickets will also be available at our FAI Cup game against Bray Wanderers on the 9th of August.
