Rosslare Fundraiser Split the Pot is one year old, and in that time have raised over €8,000 for five local organisations and they have written cheques totalling to €9,256 in prizes.

The real winners are the community because this fundraiser supports initiatives, such as Rosslare Strand children and adults soccer clubs.

Each weekend more than 100 children and adults tog out to represent Rosslare and are accompanied by dozens of parents and coaches who give their time freely to nurture the skills and activities that benefit mind and body.

Other groups to benefit from Split the Pot are Rosslare Tidy Towns, Cois Barry House and Lollitots Community Childcare.

Lollitots Community Childcare is a play based service in Rosslare village, which provides quality affordable childcare in a warm and stimulating environment.

Cois Barry Community House is a community centre run by local volunteers with professional administration and management. The Centre aims to promote the social, cultural, educational and developmental interests of young people in the community.

Weekly envelopes for entry into Rosslare Split the pot are available in a wide variety of locations from local shops to Wexford Hospital to the Enterprise centre in Kerlogue.
