A reminder from Gerdie Murphy on behalf of the Castleisland Desmonds Ladies’ GAA Club and the Lidl Plus team about their fundraising initiative.

In association with Lidl, local ladies Gaelic Football teams can raise up to €20,000 – but they’ll  need the help of their communities.

Gerdie is the ‘local link’ and he’s passing on the call to the community here to help the local club to ‘Level the Playing Field.’

How it Works

Every time you spend €30 or more, and scan your Lidl Plus card at the till, you’ll receive a stamp on your digital stamp card.

If you spend €60, you’ll get two stamps and three for a €90 spend and so on.

Collect Stamps, Submit Card
Once you have collected six stamps, you can submit your completed stamp card which will be added to your chosen club’s total.

The more stamp cards submitted for your club, the more rewards they will receive.

Simple Steps to Follow

Follow the simple steps below and help your local LGFA club! 

Step 1: Tap ‘Start collecting’ on the home screen of your app. Make sure to do this before you do your shopping, or you won’t get stamps.

Step 2: Select your club by following the instructions on the home screen.

Step 3: Collect your stamps and fill the stamp card! Get one stamp for every €30 spent.

Step 4: When your stamp card is full – submit it! You can collect as many stamp cards as you like but don’t forget to submit them or they won’t count.

From Jerseys to €20,000  

Rewards begin at a set of new jerseys for clubs that collect at least 50 stamp cards and go right up to €5,000 in cash funding for 500 or more completed cards.

In addition, the club in each province that collects the most stamp cards will win the €20,000 top prize.

Remember to scan Lidl Plus every time you shop to collect your stamps!
