On behalf of Askamore Community Council, we are so grateful for the support that we have had over the last 6 months putting together the Hollywood Comes to Askamore show.
We are delighted to announce that we made a grand total of €47,800 which will be split equally between Askamore Community Council & Ballyellis NS.
The total of €23,900 goes towards our upgrade of the Hall, the new offices & coffee dock and new “Askamore Heritage Trail” signage along our roads which will signpost the new heritage driving trail starting from the Community Centre.
To the actors & actresses of our 7 amazing films who gave their time so willingly, the extras who were roped in to dance, sing, mourn & celebrate, the backstage team who organised us all, who rehearsed, directed, filmed & edited, the people who provided our locations & props and of course, to everyone who came along to our fundraisers. Thank you.
To our cast sponsors, our advertisers, our Oscar sponsors & associates, none of this would have been possible without your help. Thank you.
And to everyone who bought a ticket, a raffle ticket or votes on the night. Your support was invaluable & we are so grateful.
A big thank you to all the local community who came out to erect the two stones last night. A particular thank you to Peter Cooper who organised the stone engraving, and of course to Cillian! Great to see this work continuing around the area.
Thanks so much to Peter Cooper, Adam English, Sean Byrne & Paddy Byrne for tidying up the back of the hall over their bank holiday weekend.
So much of what we do requires help from members of the community and we’d be lost without them all.
Thanks to everyone involved currently and if you think you could help out doing something similar, please get in touch and join our 4 hour club where you can sign up to contribute 4 hours over the entire year to help keep Askamore beautiful.
