Over the coming days Raffle Cards will be dropped into all businesses in Boyle and we are appealing to everyone to sell the lines over the coming weeks for the Christmas Lights Cash Draw. We are fast approaching Christmas and once again we are making every effort to ensure Boyle Town is looking its brightest and best. Our annual Christmas Draw will take place this year during Christmas week with a top prize of €1,000!  The funds from the draw go directly to the running costs and insurance of the Lights for the Festive Season. We appeal to every business to sell the two cards delivered to them as your contribution towards lighting Boyle. Over the past few years the willingness of so many people to support the Draw has been remarkable and we very much appreciate any contribution, however small. We are also very grateful to the team of volunteers who are responsible for the erection & dismantling of the lights (and who work in sometimes very inclement weather) – their work has already started! Additional cards can be collected from Boyle Enterprise Centre.  Completed cards / donations will be collected from you on 20th/21st December. Boyle is our town and we ask you to give our Boyle Christmas Lights Draw a priority space on your counter or desk. We thank you for your continued support and look forward to a busy and bright Christmas in Boyle.
