40 young people from the Killimordaly Kiltullagh community registered to become members of the Killimordaly Kiltulla Foróige Youth Club on Thursday, 8th September, in Killimordaly Hall.
These 12 to 18 year olds urgently need adult volunteer leaders to make it possible for these young people to socialise safely, try new things, develop their confidence and self reliance, get involved in the community and have lots of fun.
Are you aged over 18? Are you living in the Killimordaly Kiltullagh area? Would you like to give something back to the community? If so then your local Foróige club need your help.
If you can spare an hour and a half, Friday nights, 8pm to 9.30pm to help lead with other adult volunteers (the more volunteers the less commitment required and may be as little as one Friday per month), please contact 087 3332582.
