IN order to raise funds for The Koram Centre and Knockavoe School,
Strabane Sigersons will be undertaking a ‘Solo’ challenge around the
The Sigersons Solo Strabane Fundraiser will take place on Sunday, May 31, when the Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council Cllr Michaela Boyle, who is also a Sigersons Club member, other club
members, and a Knockavoe representative or a Koram Centre Volunteer will solo a ball around the town of Strabane, visiting every housing estate.
“With current restrictions we understand how tough it is for our club
members and players not being about Páirc Mhíc Sioghair,” explained club chairman, Liam Sweeney.
“This event will be bringing GAA back into the community and we hope that people can come to their front gardens and welcome us as we travel around.
“We will be adhering strictly to the social distancing guidelines
currently in place.
“We hope the people of Strabane once again can support us, over the
years the generosity of the people of Strabane both here and abroad
has been amazing, there were so many charities we could have chosen to help in the town and it was very tough to narrow it down to just two.
“As a club we would like to acknowledge every single person and
organisation who are doing excellent work at present.”
“The club know the current circumstances are very tough on people and this will lead to a lot of people feeling isolated and needing someone to speak too, that’s why we have chosen the Koram centre which provides professional therapeutic intervention and psychosocial support, this is an invaluable service and one certainly that Strabane cannot do without.”
