THE Tullamore Community Arts Centre is the latest project to receive a donation as part of the Bulmers ‘Doing Our Bit’ campaign.

The centre at Kilbride Plaza will include a 250 seat auditorium, dedicated art gallery, cafe/bar, workshop, and a series of rehearsal/meeting rooms.

The plans are for a distinctive municipal building of contemporary architecture with good use of natural materials and light, environmentally sound in its build and daily use.

“This will be a place where drama groups will rehearse, writers groups will meet, tutors will conduct classes, musicians will practice and artists will create; it will be a place to experience theatre and dance, enjoy readings, exhibitions and seminars, to hear, see and feel new experiences and the Bulmers Golden Apple donation is very well received in realising the project. The project is being really well supported in the community and the donation from Bulmers is a wonderful support”, said Paddy Fenning, chairperson fundraising group Tullamore Community Arts Centre.

As part of Bulmers’ Doing Our Bit campaign Bulmers has hidden 17 golden apples, each worth €5,000, in promotional packs of Bulmers’ cans and longnecks. Each of the 17 lucky golden apple winners will win €2,500 for themselves, in addition to €2,500 for a community project of their choice. Winners have been found throughout the country but there are still four to be found!
