A 'County Kit Clearout' fundraising campaign has been set up to support Pieta House.
GAA players from all over the country have been kindly donating their GAA gear (jerseys, shorts, training wear etc.) with all pieces being auctioned off.
The fantastic initiative is being organised by Neil Moynihan of The FIT HOUSE, based in Oranmore, Co. Galway.
The auctions are carried out via Direct Message on The FIT HOUSE Instagram with pictures of the gear being posted on the page's story. If you wish to bid for a piece of gear, simply DM The FIT HOUSE Instagram with your offer.
Lots of GAA gear up for auction!
At the end of the auction, once the highest bidder has lodged their bid into the gofundme link: https://www.gofundme.com/the-fit-house-county-kit-clearout. The gear will be put up as sold and then sent out to the bidder. All profits go towards Pieta House with €3,926 raised so far.
There has been three successful auctions already and the next one will take place on Monday, 3 December from 9pm to 11pm.
The 'County Kit Clearout' fundraising campaign is being run for the months of November and December and the gofundme page is open for donations.
*****PIETA HOUSE FUNDRAISER***** The FitHouse has come up with an idea to support Pieta House leading up to Christmas. We have decided to hold a County Kit Clear out in support of Pieta House. This entails County players donating their own inter county gear to The FitHouse where we will be auctioning each piece of gear. The gear we receive from the players will be posted up on our story which then allows members of the public to bid on their item of choice. The highest bidder will then be sent out their chosen item. This could be an ideal present leading up to Christmas. Make sure to get tagging your favourite GAA PLAYER to create more awareness and make this fundraiser for pieta house a success. To bid on a particular item simply DM @thefithouse1nm your offer. The gear will be highlighted on The FitHouse page so make sure to turn on Story and Post notifications so you don’t miss out on your chance to bid. On top of the auction, a donation page is set up with the link in our bio! All donations, big or small, are appreciated 👍🏼 Make sure to get involved for this worthy cause! (If you are successful with your bid, an extra €5 will be added for postage and packaging.) This fundraiser is also being backed by @swapsgaa and we would like to thank them for all their help so far.
Ryan McHugh (Donegal), Colm Cavanagh (Tyrone), Michael Daly (Galway), Anton Sullivan (Offaly), Shane Murphy (Kerry), Neil Flynn (Kildare) and Colm Begley (Laois) are among the list of GAA players to donate their gear.
