Keep Walking Keep Well club funding

[av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=” admin_preview_bg=”]
Hockey Ireland is delighted to launch a clubs funding stream for ‘Keep walking Keep well’ this year, with the support of Sport Ireland & Healthy Ireland Keep Well Campaign. We currently have 3 clubs already confirmed on the scheme; however, we would love to see more come on board.

We are delighted to be one of six National Governing Bodies involved.  Is your club interested in getting involved? This could be a great opportunity for your club to give something back to the local community by providing a well lit walking space for local residents to come together for some outdoor activity.

A maximum application amount of €1000 is available for clubs to apply to support with costs associated with opening up their facilities for walking activities including:

  • Insurance
  • Lighting
  • Outdoor noticeboards
  • Signage
  • Hand sanitiser/PPE
  • Hi Vis Walking Gear
  • Distance Markers/Cones
