On behalf of the Molloy family and the Glen Tavern, we would like to thank everyone who supported our Alzheimer’s fundraiser weekend in August. A special mention to all the local businesses in Glenties and Ardara who kindly donated prizes for our raffle all weekend. Also our many friends who gave generous money donations and gifts and to the dart winners and organisers of last man standing for donating to our charity along with the motorbikers for their support. I wish to thank Mary Gill who provided all the food for Friday and Saturday night and our own family the Cufflinks and our good friends the Campbell’s who provided wonderful music. As you all know this is a charity which is very dear to both families. Last year we helped to buy the bed and hoist for Glenties Alzheimers Comfort Fund as they had poor changing facilities. This has been a greatly successful event, this year we raised €2500 which will be donated to the Alzheimers Comfort Fund in the Glenties Day Centre.

Guided Activities Glenties, Ardara and Portnoo

A small group have been working on a project which aims to provide Guided Activities in the Glenties, Ardara and Portnoo areas. It’s working title is ‘Ardara Adventures’, and much work has been done on assessing costs for both equipment and training.

They are seeking funding from DLDC (Donegal Local Development Company), and have in principle been given the green flag to proceed, assuming that both the demand, and the business case for these activities can be established.

To that end, the group have devised 2 short survey questionnaires; the first, for prospective Guides, who would be willing to be trained in the prospective disciplines (Kayaking, Mountain Leader, Paddle Boarding, Sailing, Snorkeling, Surfing & Swimming. The second questionnaire, is to establish the market for these services.

We would be very much obliged, if you could fill out one of the attached questionnaires (and feel free to circulate it to whomever you feel would be interested).

Questionnaire 1 for those wishing to be trained and become Activity Guides;

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MBQKRR7

Questionnaire 2 for those willing to utilise Activity Services;

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CLN92B3

We really appreciate your help in completing this, and hope that it will lead to some constructive employment for people in the area.
