Dundalk FC are proud to continue their partnership with Temple Street Children’s Hospital and Fyffes.
To further support Temple Street the players and staff of Dundalk Football Club are donating a days wages to the charity.
This is in addition to the bucket collection that we are holding tonight ahead of the game for the charity and we will be wearing our Fyffes/Temple Street purple kit tonight in aid of the initiative.
Commenting on the initiative, captain Brian Gartland and he explained the gesture.
“It’s a brilliant cause. We are delighted to be part of a club which is doing such a charitable donation. We wanted to lead by example as players and we are donating a days wages each to the charity. It’s 15% of our week’s wages to the charity. In doing that, we are hoping that it will encourage everyone, not just Dundalk fans, to do the same. We want everyone to donate what they can. It doesn’t have to be a days wages but it is what they can to support this great cause. If you can please donate at the bucket collection before the game or online. It is a worthy charity for the whole country. There are so many people that avail of the charity in the local community and nationwide. It is something that is close to home with Dundalk and it is something which helps everyone all across the country which is great and needs as much support as we can.”
