Our Membership Draw has been extended until 15th December!
We didn’t reach our membership target of 1,500 new members by 30th November 2017.
However it was decided at the AGM last week to still hold a draw for €12,000 since membership has grown significantly over the last few months!
The new closing date is 15th December, with the winner being announced on 20th December so there’s still time to enter!
It’s that time of year, our 12 Days of Christmas Draws are back for 2018! We’re going to be giving away €15,000 over the first 12 working days in December! Make sure to keep an eye on our social media pages to see who has won each day! Good luck!
Please note, the 39th Annual General Meeting is taking place on Thursday 30th November 2017, in respect of financial year ended 30th September 2017. The meeting will be held in The Morrison Hotel, Ormond Quay Lower, Dublin 1 at 5:30pm.
Congratulations to our 2017 Matthew Dawson Bursary Winners!
