The Scheme was developed to support the work of volunteers, to enhance the experience of members, and to provide vital equipment to local youth clubs and groups.Government Chief Whip Joe McHugh comments: “This funding will be a great benefit to youth clubs and youth projects here in Donegal over the coming year. The Scheme is administered through the Donegal ETB with each group asking their members to come up with a list of equipment they wanted.“I want to give a big thank you to everyone involved with these very important projects locally. The volunteering you do is of enormous benefit to the entire community,” the Fine Gael TD said. “I also want to thank Minister Zappone who has done enormous work for Donegal again this year.”Minister Zappone said: “What made this scheme unique was that clubs were asked to consult with the young people themselves to ascertain their opinions on what equipment should be applied for. “It was a key feature of the scheme that any equipment applied for must directly benefit the members of the youth club or group.”Details on the Donegal groups:Half a million euro awarded to Donegal youth clubs was last modified: December 16th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Katherine Zapponelocal youth club equipment schemeyouth clubslast_img read more
