Supermac’s, Casement Square, Cobh will mark the opening of it’s new restaurant
on Saturday, 5th February with a collection of sports equipment which will be
redistributed amongst schools, sports clubs and organisations in Cobh through
voluntary organisation Sports Aid. The opening of Supermac’s, Cobh will be a fun
filled family day starting at 1.00pm with some very special guests.
Supermac’s is backing the collection of sports gear and equipment that has been
grown out of or will not be used again by voluntary organisation Sports Aid. The
sports gear and equipment will be passed on to organisations that are in need of it
but may not have the resources to purchase the equipment themselves including
schools, sports clubs and organisations throughout Cobh. The collection will run
from Saturday, 5th February to Sunday 13th February in Supermac’s Cobh.
Sports Aid anticipates a much increased demand for sports gear and equipment in
Cobh due to funding cuts. Sports Aid needs all types of sports gear and equipment
including football boots, Astroturf boots, footballs, hurleys, sliotars, helmets, rugby
balls, equestrian tack and golf clubs. Should people have heavy sports equipment at
home such as old treadmills, rowing machines, equestrian equipment, free weights
or bicycles they wish to pass on, Sports Aid will take their details in Supermac’s, Cobh
to arrange a suitable date for collection. All sports gear and equipment must be in
good condition and cleaned before it can be accepted by Sports Aid.
Commenting on the Sports Aid initiative, Managing Director of Supermac’s Pat
McDonagh, says, “Supermac’s is delighted to facilitate Sports Aid with its collection
of sports gear and equipment in Cobh. We’ve seen over the last few years with cuts
in funding to schools and sports organisations that there is more of a need than ever
for an organisation such as this. Sport has a strong, encouraging influence on young
people, something which is invaluable for their development. This coming year may
be more difficult for people to get their hands on the equipment they need to get
started or improve their performance in various sports, something which has been
recognised by Sports Aid Director Niall McNeilus. Supermac’s hopes this collection
will be well supported in Cobh, giving people new opportunities in various sporting
