Team Limerick Clean-Up 4 announces “Loving Limerick” Valentines Competition.
The hugely successful Team Limerick Clean-up (TLC) is to take place for the fourth consecutive year this Good Friday 30 March 2018 and registration is now open on www.teamlimerickcleanup.ie
To celebrate TLC4, primary schools from across Limerick have been invited to take part in an exciting Valentine’s competition. Paul O’Connell was joined today [Thursday 25 Jan 2018] by the Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr Stephen Keary and pupils from Scoil Iosaf Girls' NS at The Red Door Gallery, Newcastle West to launch the Team Limerick Clean-up4 and ‘Loving Limerick’ competition.
Primary school classes are being asked to design and decorate a big love heart to celebrate their love for Limerick and TLC. The competition is an enjoyable way to promote greater awareness of TLC4 amongst young students and all love hearts will be on display at The Hunt Museum in Limerick city over Valentines week.
The competition is divided into three different categories:
Category A: Junior Infants to First Class
Category B: Second to Fourth Class
Category C: Fifth and Sixth Classes
The winning schools will receive vouchers for school equipment.
Full details of the competition can be found on the TLC website
Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr Stephen Keary said: “Team Limerick Clean-Up is not too far away now. I would encourage communities across the length and breadth of Limerick to get involved and help clean up their localities. It is an amazing undertaking that instils a massive sense of pride in people and their areas. Limerick has reaped the benefits of the previous three TLCs and this year, I’m confident, will be no different.”
“Team Limerick Clean Up is a massive project and I would like to commend all those behind the scenes in Limerick City and County Council and the JP McManus Benevolent Fund who make TLC possible every year.”
Commenting on TLC4 and the competition, Paul O’Connell said: “We're pleased to announce that registration for TLC4 is now open! TLC3 was Europe’s largest ever one-day clean-up with over 16,500 people taking to the streets of Limerick and we intend to continue this growth for TLC4. Volunteers can keep up to date with details of TLC4 on our website and social media pages.”
“The Valentines competition is a fun, innovative way to further educate young kids on the importance of keeping their communities clean all year round. We have received really positive feedback so far and it looks like over 200 love hearts will be on display in The Hunt Museum this Valentine’s!”
