What is a Patchathon?
Every two years Foxrock Youth Club stages a 24 hour event to raise money for charity in an event designed for everyone in the community to come and join in and enjoy. Previous events have seen us build Ireland’s biggest cardboard house, and carry out Ireland’s first space launch, putting not one but three purpose built houses into the atmosphere by balloon power.
This year we plan to wrap Foxrock church in flags made from patches that you create. We’ll provide the patch, you decorate it in whatever way you choose, with an emblem or design that means something special to you, and we’ll help you add it to the flag and mount it on the walls of the church. We’ll collect your story too if you like. The idea behind the Patch is that it represents something important or special to you - it might be a special person you admire, a place you love to visit, a special happy memory, a favourite film, the football team you support or even your favourite food!
On the weekend there will be entertainment, games, BBQ,prizes, music, dancing and who knows what else.
