Connemara Group launches Fundit Campaign

Seaweek1

Conamara Environmental Education & Cultural Centre is an award winning cultural/environmental group running festivals since 1984 in Letterfrack, Connemara, Co. Galway. Last year they ran a highly successful Fundit campaign raising over €10,000 for their festivals.
“ We were just gobsmacked with all your generosity & kindness and we say thank you! Your support ensured 2015 was highly successful & much to our delight we were awarded the prestigious Babaro, Above & Beyond award in October” States Leo Hallissey, Chairman of the CEECC.org.
For 2016 CEECC, have a full programme of events which include 2 festivals and a Summer School on Inishbofin. See website (www.ceecc.org) for event listing. But due to cutbacks in the Arts and the small business base that they work from, they are once again short of funding to carry out these great festivals.
“The cornerstone of our events, is to make them accessible to as many people as possible, hence over 80% of our are events free. But we are struggling to be able to provide the great variety and quantity of events that have made us an award winning organisation” says Leo, “ So we are looking for the public’s helps again through another Fundit Campaign”
CEECC hope to raise €5000, that will be used for their well known and loved “After the Light Parade” – an integral part of their annual Conamara Sea Week which takes place in October. They employ a creative team to work with all the groups involved in the parade. It takes months of planning and man hours to create this feast for all senses that is the magical “After the Light Parade”. The event has become the biggest event in the village of Letterfrack, involving the young and old of the community, and nobody wants to see it cancelled, hence another Fundit Campaign.
Their Fundit campaign is running until mid March and CEECC have some great rewards on offer including CDs, private music and dance lessons with some of Irelands top musicians, weekends away, kayaking trips and more. Every little helps so even if you only have €5 spare, please support.
