Neart: Connect the Dots for Sherkin
Sherkin Island Development Society are fundraising to purchase the school buildings and garden for the community.
Schools are full of connections, hopes and dreams. In 2016, after 128 years of educating island children Sherkin Island National School closed its doors for the last time. The Community want to keep the school building as a place of connections and life for future generations. The school building will be for the community, diaspora and our friends, to use as The Neart Hub.
This is an opportunity for people to connect with their heritage, connect with the island and connect with the future of Sherkin. Become part of the story.
The names of all contributors will be placed in a special edition Roll Book on permanent display in the School Building. Individual contribution amounts can be anonymous on request.
We are asking people to purchase a dot, with all funds raised going towards Neart: Connect the Dots, on Sherkin.
All monies raised will go towards the Neart An Island Evolution. A separated Monitoring committee has been established to oversee the funds. Anything over the target of €80,000 will go towards the Neart Hub developments.
