Trolley dash is child's play for Antrim's Gaels!

Pictured at the trolley dash are Ava Finnegan, St Paul’s, Belfast; Archie Kinney, Regional Vice President of SVP; Dermot McAleese of Portglenone; Iain Semple, Manager of Sainsbury’s Supermarket, Kennedy Centre; Meabh Kelly of Sarsfields, Belfast and Lauren Carey of St Paul’s, Belfast.Antrim Gaels added a few new moves to their fitness regime when they took part in a trolley dash for Antrim GAA's Christmas charity initiative, #SaffronAid3, at Sainsbury’s Supermarket in Belfast’s Kennedy Centre.

The dash was organised by Sinead Steele from St Enda’s GLC & Sean Kelly, Antrim PRO and was supported locally by Sainsbury’s Supermarket.   St Vincent de Paul (SVP), which works with families in need across every community of Northern Ireland, will distribute the games, toys, clothes and toiletries collected to the most vulnerable in our society, helping to make sure that as many families as possible wake up to something special on 25 December.

Antrim GAA PRO, Sean Kelly, said: “Following the successful addition of the trolley dash to our fundraising efforts last year, we were absolutely delighted when Iain Semple, Sainsbury’s manager at the Kennedy Centre store, generously agreed to let us loose in his aisles once again.

Clubs across the county are also involved in our wider #Saffronaid3 Christmas appeal by encouraging their members to fill a shoebox with a few items for families in need or alternatively they can donate a gift for a child.  We also hope many Clubs will make their premises available as collections points for SVP.
