West Coast Utd has two upcoming fundraisers, as traditionally this is the time we do the bulk of our fundraising to keep football afloat in West Connemara.

Cash for Clobber collection: We are doing a one-off collection this weekend (November 16/17) at various collection points in West Connemara. For our Cash for Clobber collection we are looking for all types of clothing, paired shoes, handbags, belts, towels, linen, etc. 

All recyclables should be dry and clean and packed in plastic bags and dropped to any collection point. For hygiene reasons we cannot accept duvets or pillows. All clothes will be recycled, with the best items sold on to charities for Third World countries. West Coast Utd are paid per kilo collected, so we hope everyone does a ‘spring clean’ in November. 

We will have people at the following venues on that weekend or contact any club coach or manager to arrange collection:

Ellis Hall Letterfrack, Saturday and Sunday, 10:00 to 17:00

Claddaghduff Hall, Saturday, 12:00 to 15:00

Upstairs/ Downstairs cafe (Clifden), will accept bags at any stage

Old School Recess, Sunday 11:00 to 13:00

Roundstone, contact Yvonne on 087-9632751

For more information call Joachim, 086-4098814

West Coast Utd Race Night

Our annual Race Night takes place in Paddy Coyne’s pub on Tullycross on Friday, December 27 at 8:30 pm. Generally regarded as the best night out over the Christmas period, we’re again expecting a huge crowd to support our biggest fundraising function of the year. Once again West Coast Utd are appealing to local businesses to help our fundraising drive. Race sponsorship is available from €100 and we’ll be delighted to accept prizes of all sorts. Local hotels and restaurants have always been brilliant at sponsoring dinners and other prizes so we’re sure this year’s Race Night will be equally successful.

All our club managers/ coaches will be selling horses at €20 and two auction races will be sold on the night. We can guarantee a great night at the races and maybe even a chance to make decent money. Contact any West Coast Utd coach for more details.
