The Duleek, Bellewstown and District Community Facility (DBDCF) Project “Buy a Block campaign” got a big injection of funds this week when it received a cheque for €50,000!!
The cheque was donated by the Duleek & District Athletics Club who fundraised for the much needed community facility in the area.
“We are delighted to receive such a large sum of money from a local club” said DBDCF Chairman, Oliver Cudden.
“It just shows you what the community can do when they pull together for a worthy cause. We will be using this money to complete phase One, Two and Four of the build. We are very grateful to Duleek & District Athletics Club for their fundraising efforts.”

The DBDCF project will provide the community of Duleek, Bellewstown and surrounding district with a multifunctional facility that can be used by all teams, all clubs and all members of the community. The state of the art club will have the following facilities:
Phase one, two and four of the community facilities are due for completion in late 2020. So far the 'Buy a Block' Campaign has raised over €13,600 and 69 Blocks have been sold - Platinum 14, Gold 14, Silver 23 and Bronze 18.
“We are making progress but we are looking for the community to help us fundraise or donate to the buy a block campaign so we can complete the project” said Oliver Cudden.
The buy a block campaign has contribution options of €50, €100, €250 and €500. Your block will have a commemorative plaque on which we will engrave your family name. The block will appear on a wall in the facility.
