Community groups in Tipperary in with a chance to win up to €1,000

€1000 to be spent as your organisation wishes is the top prize that’s up for grabs with the launch of the 2015 RUTT (Round up the Troops) project. The initiative, run by South Tipperary Volunteer Centre in association with North Tipperary Leader Partnership, South Tipperary Development Company and Tipperary County Council will go county-wide this year.  The initiative aims to assist community based not for profit organisations in County Tipperary with the completion of projects that they are not in a position to complete themselves due to a lack of sufficient resources or skills within their group.

Community groups in Tipperary in with a chance to win up to €1,000In essence the project is about cultivating community spirit through volunteerism where a group that has the resources assists a group that doesn’t to complete a project that will benefit the hosting group. Project options are only limited by the resources and skills that the group who plan to take on the project can provide.

Signing up is as simple as talking to your own group to see if you have the skills and time available to complete a project for another organisation, then approaching organisations to source a project for your group to complete.

Ten projects will be chosen by the RUTT Project Team from those submitted and each will be given a budget of €150. The judging panel will then visit the ten completed projects and choose the winners with the two highest scoring projects being awarded the €1000 top prize and €500 second prize respectively.

To register a project, for more information and a full list of terms and conditions go to the RUTT menu item on www.volunteersouthtipp.ie. Closing date for submission of projects is 5pm on October 28th with the shortlist of the ten selected projects being published on October 30th. All projects to be completed by December 7th with the judging panel visiting the completed projects on December 7th.
