SSPE Fundraiser on the 6th of April in the Mardyke Arena

5 Apr 2017
Calling all Basketball players/ Sports Lovers

On behalf of the Sports Studies and Physical Education department in University College Cork, we would like to cordially invite your school and students to participate in a Wheelchair Basketball tournament in the Mardyke Arena, Cork on April 6th 2017 from 10-4. In addition to a tournament, there will be an array of fun activities, music and games held on the day with donations being raised for the Irish Wheelchair Association through your participation. 

An entrance fee of €40 per team of ten applies which will go straight to the charities as all costs have been covered through sponsorship. We would also ask the students to do a little extra fundraising of their own if they can; as such please find attached a sponsorship with the official IWA charity number. The students would be representing their school so we would ask them to bring school Jerseys to add to the atmosphere. 

We feel the students would benefit from the opportunity to participate in a sport that highlights the abilities of individuals with a disability. We intend to take photographs on the day, to be published in local newspapers or for the UCC Sports Studies website, we hope this does not present any problems for your schools.

If you have any further questions don't hesitate to contact us.
