Castleisland Rugby Club members are about to introduce a brand new way of fundraising – brand new to Castleisland anyway.

The ‘Split the Bucket’ idea is simplicity itself and it will be rolled out at the Shoemaker’s Bar on this Friday night, August 31st at 9pm.

Buckets in Pubs and Shops

Buckets and envelops will be provided in business premises and pubs throughout the town. People are being asked to put a €2 coin into the envelope, write their phone number on the envelope and put the envelope in the bucket.

Then the ‘Split the Bucket’ concept comes into play. Every Friday night the club members will collect the buckets, count the proceeds, draw the winning envelope, contact the winner and split the proceeds right down the middle.

First Draw on September 7th

The first draw will take place Friday 7th September and there will be a guaranteed winner every Friday.
