The Lucan Festival Committee would like to sincerely thank all those who gave so generously to the Lucan Festival Bucket Collection last weekend (14th /16th & 17 April). €1658.52 was raised and with costs for this year’s Festival expected to be in the region €18,000, this is a great addition to the Festival Fund.
In addition to fundraising activities, the next event being the Stars of Lucan talent extravaganza on the 21st May, 2011 in the Church of Ireland Parish Centre plans are well underway for the Lucan Festival 2011. With the Cinemobile (mobile cinema) already confirmed and other likely events may include an art exhibition, battle of the bands, performances from local dance groups and lots of the old favourites so watch this space.
“We were quite overcome by everyone’s generosity last weekend, there is a real sense good will toward the Festival that we want to build on this year. In the coming weeks we will be contacting local businesses and organisations regarding ways they can get involved to make this Festival the best yet. Of course everyone is more than welcome to contact us directly as well with any ideas.”
“We were also happy to welcome new volunteers who helped out with the Bucket Collection and would like to say a big thank you to them, our other volunteers and Committee Members who donated their time. Anyone else who would like to get involved please get in contact as there is still lots to do in the run up to the Festival and during the week itself.”
