26-01-2013: A note on club fundraising.
Wolfe Tone Youth Club organises a number of fundraising initiatives throughout the year.
We run a weekly Lucky Numbers draw in conjunction with Ballywaltrim FC, the cost of this is €2 per envelope.
We run bag-packing events in the local supermarkets. Club members and parents volunteer their time for these events.
Our Christmas Draw is our major annual fundraiser. Members sell the tickets and return them to the club with the money raised.
The club needs to fundraise for a number of reasons. We have the cost of running and maintaining the Community Centre. Bookings for the Centre are down significantly but the bills still need to be paid. Membership fees are slow to come in but the club still has to pay League fees, training fees, coach education, etc.
In 2013 we hope to begin work on renovating the pavilion building. Unfortunately we received no funding from the Sports Capital programme. We will provide first class changing facilities which will be available for all the users of the Temple Sportsfield. We hope to also do some work on the pitches, mainly drainage.
The cost of this to the club is significant so our fundraising efforts will continue. We need everyone to support us in this- to buy the Lucky Numbers envelopes each week, to volunteer for the bag-packs and to support our Christmas Draw.
18-01-2013: All WDSL games off this weekend 19th- 20th January. The WDSL have decide to call off all fixtures for this weekend.

09-01-2013: Lucky Numbers Draw.
The Lucky Numbers Draw resumes on Thursday, 17th January. The jackpot stands at €2400 with three €20 winners each week. Please get your envelopes in on time for the draw.
As a charitable organisation, Wolfe Tone Youth Club relies on sponsorship and support from local business and individuals. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our sponsors for their generous and continued support.
