Ahead of this unique Christmas, the Tipperary senior hurling panel launch their ‘Christmas 3 Charity Appeal’.
Being consciously aware of the most vulnerable in their community, the Tipperary hurlers are embarking on a fundraising charity appeal where they hope to raise at least €3k for four great local Tipperary causes – Nenagh General Hospital, South Tipperary General Hospital, Thurles Community Hospital and Cluain Arann Community Health Centre, Tipperary Town.
We ask you to walk, run or cycle 3k or 3 miles on December 30th in your own area and follow our hurlers as they active in their own communities from 11am in support of these great causes.
We especially ask you to please donate to our GoFundme page https://gofundme.com/f/tippshchristmas3 in aid of our charity appeal.
We want you to wear your Tipperary colours and share your photos and video messages with Tipperary social media platforms as we look to make this a very special day in all Tipperary communities.
There are 6 great spot prizes for anyone one donates to the appeal, including a signed Tipperary jersey, framed photos of the 2019 and 2016 All-Ireland winning teams plus signed hurleys owned by captain Seamus Callanan, Noel McGrath and Padraic Maher.
On top of that while Tipperary supporters were unable to attend recent inter-county matches, manager Liam Sheedy and some of the players want to visit some of the most needy in Tipperary, in a socially distance setting at their own home. Do you know someone that would like a visit this Christmas? If so please send a short email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us why that special someone would love a visit from Liam and the lads. 15 deemed the most worthy will receive a visit and gift from Liam, while other entries will be selected at random for phone calls from other members of the panel during a three hour period on December 30th. So, please include your phone number with your entry. Closing date for requests is 23rd December 23rd, 2020.
