      The permit has been granted for a street collection fundraiser for the Relay For Life - Team:- The Empire Gives Back for the Irish Cancer Society.
      The permit covers us from 9am to 6pm but I think we should focus on the busy time around 10 - 3 (or whatever time you are available)
      Parking various points around Wexford - recommend Tesco or the Talbot Hotel as they are a short walk to our Changing area.
      Glen, one of our Relay team members has kindly offered the use of the electric bike shop he works in for our changing area:- Kelstar Bike Shop, 105 S Main St, Whitewell, Wexford, Y35 HXE8
      This troop is open to anyone from all four clubs as well as any Team member from the Wexford Relay
      I may have room at my place to put a few up the night before and/or after who are travelling from further afield 😊😉
      This is our main fundraiser for the relay so please help support us if you can.

      Hey folks, the relay for life is finally back!!!, registration will soon begin for this years relay.
      This will be the fourth year our clubs team 'The Empire Gives Back' will be taking part.

      This year they are anticipating a huge demand for team places, luckily the relay committee keep a spot just for us
      *This event is open to all four clubs but it also differs from many troops also as our friends and family can also be part of our team and help support us on this one!!! (many of us will be wearing costumes but you don't need a costume to take part in this!) 

      Registration costs €10 per person and a deposit of €100 is required to secure our team place for 2020, this mean we need at least 10 members (hopefully a lot more in due course) to kick this thing off (We now have x10 members covering the registration fee)
      Additional members can join the team by following this link:- https://www.relayforlifewexford.com/fundraisers/theempiregivesback
      Scroll down and click on 'join us'

      If you ask anyone who was part of our team in previous years they will all agree with me that this is one of the most rewarding troop/events you will take part in and a truly team bonding experience.

      Last time we helped raise over €130,000 😉👍

      For anyone who hasn't heard about the relay for life here is some information:-

      'Relay For Life is a 24 hour event that brings the whole community together to Celebrate the lives of cancer survivors, Remember those lost to the disease and Fight Back by increasing knowledge of cancer and raising money to fund vital research and services of the Irish Cancer Society.
      At Relay, teams of family members and friends commit to having at least one member of their team walking around the track at all times. While they are doing that, a festival of fun, entertainment and community takes place which unites everybody in the fight against cancer.'
      More info here:- (to be updated once the relay committee post more info')

      This is a great family event with lots of vendors, food, live bands and plenty of entertainment during the whole event!

      1. It is a 24 hour event! - this mean you will be at the event for 24hrs!

      2. Fundraising is a big part of the relay both during the event and leading up to it!, sponsorship forms will be given out in due course to those signed up.

      3. This is open to anyone, not just Garrison members, friends, family, acquaintances etc., the more members we can get on the team the more funds we can raise for this worthy cause!.

      4. You don't have to be in costume for this but it would be great if you do!, some of us were last year and we had a great response entertaining the crowds 

      Note:- If you have any friends or family who would like to join us then please invite them to do so, just mention it to us and we will add them to the sign-up

      I will update this thread as and when more information comes in.

      EVENT - Relay For Life Wexford 2020
      LOCATION - Pairc Charman Wexford
      DATE - July 09th-10th
      TIME - (to be updated but usually around 2pm )
      POC/Team Captain - Chris Lewis
      COSTUMES - 501st, Rebel Legion,  RII, GA, *Friends and family
      *The unique thing about this troop is that friends and family can join our team and take part with us, it will not be an official troop of course (from the point of view 501st) as they are not members but they will be part of our relay team and just as important, I can list them here and it just makes it easier to keep track of our team members.
      The other unique thing about this troop is we can fund raise directly for the charity as members of our relay team on behalf of the Irish Cancer Society, this is different to most troops where we 'support the charity/fund raise' if that makes sense.
      This year will be more important than ever, due to the pandemic the Irish Cancer society has lost the bulk of its funding for the last two years, this goes towards helping the people we love, lets help them make make this the best Relay yet, this is what we do, this what we are good at!!!
