Congratulations to Aoife O'Neill (14), Crossbridge Foróige Club, Co. Wicklow, and Isobel Donnery (15) from Camross Loft Foróige Club, Co. Wicklow, who are through to the semi-final of the Aldi National Junior Baking Competition.
They beat stiff competition at the Regional Baking Final in Dublin yesterday, July 18th.
The theme for 2016 is ‘Muffins of the Moment’, with Isobel baking Lemon Drizzle Muffins, while Aoife baked Rose Chocolate Muffins.
The Coca-Cola HBC Foróige 5k was officially launched at the National Sports Campus today. Runners, joggers and walkers of all levels are being urged to save the date. The run which will take place on Sunday May 24th 2015 was launched by Health Minister, Leo Varadkar TD (Dublin West). Foróige in Dublin 15 will coordinate the run and is partnering with Coca-Cola HBC and the National Sports Campus. The route will offer participants a view of the National Sports Campus and its excellent sports facilities.
Volunteers from across Ireland are hoping to raise vital funds for their local Foróige clubs and projects in the run up to the festive season. The hard working volunteers are raising much needed funds thanks to Tesco, which is hosting a national bag pack for the charity across 79 of its stores nationwide. Foróige volunteers – as well as young people involved in the organisation’s clubs and projects - will be on hand helping shoppers pack their groceries in the Tesco stores in nationally on Saturday December 13th.
