Messengers of Peace Community Project
In conjunction with Kells Local Heroes Group 5th Meath Kells Scouts namely Beavers and Cubs decided to fundraise for the major makeover of the Playground in the town. The Playground at the Fair Green close to the main shopping centre is a vital part of Community life in the town and the children were very keen on the concept of the 'children for children' aspect of this fundraiser - they are participating in a project that they themselves will benefit from directly.
On Tuesday April 15th the group held a 'Fun Run & Playtime' event in the Playground which involved the children paying €5 to participate in different games and activities. We had an Easter raffle and all participants received an Easter egg. A total of €300 was raised and this was passed on to the Kells Local Heroes Group who are going to undertake the work at a later date. When work commences we hope to be involved in the more labour intensive side of the project offering as much help as we can. Please see our website for more photos and updates.
