They’re teeny weeny, And not so gleamy

On the table or on the ground, they’re found all around.

Extremely small-no one cares for them at all!!

They clog up your purse and can be such a curse.

They are the hardest to spend, let’s not pretend.

Our club is the exception-that’s not OUR perception!

To us they’re worth loads, they’ll help us reach our goal.

It’s for a great cause, don’t hesitate or pause

Join OUR CHALLENGE today-Send ONE MILLION this way!!!

Please note, the DECK will also happily accept 2c, 5c, 10c, 20c, 50c, €1, €2, coins & €5, €10, €20, €50, & €100 notes!

A group of nine local teens accompanied by four adult leaders will be travelling to Kaoma in Zambia next March as part of a cultural exchange programme. The teens will be completing their Albert Schweitzer Leadership for Life Programme in a school in Kaoma working with Zambian young people their own age. They will also spend the afternoons and evenings working with young children in a local orphanage.

For more information or to leave a donation, contact Kerry Gallagher or Jo Warnock in the DECK Youth Development Project, 6 Tirchonaill St, Donegal Town, or on 074 972 3029.
