You will all be aware of the huge impact the COVID crisis has had on the hospitality

sector and in line with every business depending on functions, entertainment and

sport our Irish Centre has suffered too. In short, the lockdown has caused us to lose

in excess of a hundred thousand pounds, but we are confident we can survive and

bounce back. We have and will explore every avenue of funding and grants available

but crucially we now need the help of our loyal members and friends.

For many reasons, especially the lockdown, this is almost impossible this year. We

have decided to post cards FREE to all our current members but in return ask them

to support one or both of our fund-raising schemes which are detailed below. Of

course, you may also wish to pay your subscription which would be appreciated.

50/50 DRAW - We are asking members to send us ten pounds. This will entitle you

to one chance in ALL the 10 MONTHLY DRAWS held from March to December

2021. You can of course buy two or more chances by paying 20, 30 OR MORE in

multiples of ten. The pot from each draw will be split as follows 50% to our

Development Fund and 50% divided between prizes (35% first, 10% second and 5%


organization which will provide support on an ongoing basis. The proposed

subscription for this will be SIXTY POUNDS per annum single or ONE HUNDRED

POUNDS per couple. Friends may join the scheme at any time. BENEFITS to Friends

will include free memberships, priority bookings for popular events, special

discounts on promotions and invitations to a monthly event with an opportunity to

network with the Irish Community.

WHERE WILL THE MONEY GO? Briefly, the committee aim to “reclaim” the ground

floor as an authentic Irish venue and to carry out essential works in the building.

Several other funding initiatives are in place and will be reported to members as

soon as a general meeting can be called safely.

Bought a 50/50 fo Pat & one for me, here's hoping we're lucky. But most importantly, anything to support the TIC is a bonus.

The plan to 'reclaim' the ground floor is excellent and hoping it is a resounding success.

Good luck .
