Visit of the Children of Chernobyl - A big Thank you!

On Sunday last, July the 13th, our club had the pleasure to be involved in hosting a fun day out for the group of children from Chernobyl at the Doon Shore at our beautiful Lough Key. The group of children where staying in the Boyle area at the time, on a holiday organised by the "Friends of the Children of Chernobyl" Committee.
Activities on the day included Fun and Games, a Barbecue, gift bags and boat rides for all the kids on Lough Key.
Friends from the Boyle River Boat Club were kind enough to join forces with our own Club and brought down a few of their Cruisers to bring some of the youngsters out on, along with our own Patrol boat.
At this point, Boyle & District Angling Club would like to express our gratitude and sincerely thank all those who helped us with the event for the kids, namely:

  • The generous business people of Boyle for their continuous support of the club and sponsorship.
  • Businesses that sponsored items on the day included: Kennedys Londis, Kellys Supervalue, Better Buys, Surprises, Corrigans Footwear and Dalys Pub. (no particular order)
  • The Boyle River Boat Club for their help and assistance.
  • Last but not least, A big Thank You goes to all our own Club members who worked tireless on the day and in the week or so leading up to the event in order to make things happen! This Thank you wish is particularly being extended by our own chairman who couldn't be there on the day, but is grateful to all those for putting all the work and effort into the day. Well Done!!!

Our PRO David Greene was kind enough to take and submit a few photos...
