New Boat Appeal

Written by CBC Committee Monday, 09 April 2012 07:58



Cork Boat Club is making a special one-off appeal to all those connected with our Club to help us purchase a second-hand Quad. We last acquired a Quad in 2007 (the Denis MacSweeney) and due to the increasing size of our membership, we urgently need for a new coxed quad / coxed four. We estimate the cost of a good second-hand boat would be approximately €5000 and are contacting all current Boat Club members, past members etc to seek help in funding the boat.

Please do whatever you can to help this urgent exceptional Quad funding appeal. We know times are difficult at present and though we are suggesting an amount of €50 due to the exceptional nature of the need, we appreciate any and all contributions. All going well, we hope to have a special club day in the near future to unveil our new Quad to everyone.

The following link can be used to contribute using credit cards or PayPal or online banking to Ulster Bank sort code 98-54-82 Account Code 10263647 or send a cheque to Emmet Walsh, Ulster Bank, Ballincollig, Cork.

Thank you all in advance. Go Boat Club!

John McCarthy (Club Captain) & Emmet Walsh (Club Chairman)
