A clothing recycling drive has been organised to fundraise for the Knockadoon Enhancement Project with the final collection day set for Saturday, 21 October.
All clothing items, which also includes, bed linens, towels, curtains, shoes, bags, belts and soft toys, are accepted and should be dropped to the Ballymacoda Hall between 7-9pm on Thursday, 19 or Friday, 20 October. Alternatively, the hall will be open until 12pm on Saturday, 21 October – the day the clothing will be collected.
“The proceeds of course will go towards the Knockadoon Enhancement Project and the walk,” said Eric O’Driscoll of the Knockadoon Enhancement Project. “The project is going great. This summer it was very popular. People are getting to see the area better with the new walk. We have two phases done and a third to go. We are two-thirds of the way around the peninsula, so we have one more phase to finish it all.”
The Knockadoon Enhancement Project (KEP) is a subcommittee of the Ballymacoda/Ladysbridge Community Council whose members are drawn and elected from the local community. The voluntary group aims to develop and enhance the local area and environment for the enjoyment and pleasure of locals and visitors alike. The group have completed a number of works around the peninsula, with further works planned.
“The support of the people has been amazing,” said Mr O’Driscoll. “Any fundraisers we have held have been very well supported. We really appreciate people’s support. Without it wouldn’t be able to carry out the work were are doing.”
