Mullingar schools leading in Lidl Plus LGFA Stamp Card Competition

Mullingar Community College and Loreto College Mullingar, along with St Peter’s College, Dunboyne, are leading the way in the Lidl Plus LGFA Stamp Card Competition for Leinster.

Since the competition launched at the beginning of September, St Peter’s College have collected 33 stamp cards, Mullingar Community College have collected 27 stamp cards, and Loreto College Mullingar have collected 21 stamp cards.

These Leinster schools are closing in on 50 stamp cards, which will win the schools a set of Lidl sponsored jerseys designed specifically for their schools, and automatic entries to win €50,000 to invest in facilities, equipment, or resources for Ladies Gaelic Football in their schools.

Currently, a total of 349 schools across the country have collected 1,615 stamp cards.

The first 10,000 stamp cards collected will receive a limited edition LGFA 50th Anniversary Jersey that was designed by seven-year-old Aoife Callanan from Cork.

A recent research survey carried about by State of the Nation of behalf of Lidl Ireland revealed that 50% of female secondary students currently play sport, compared to 39% in 2017, highlighting that the focus on promoting women’s sport such as Lidl’s partnership with the LGFA has had a positive impact.

Lidl Ireland launched its Lidl Plus LGFA rewards scheme to encourage shoppers to show their #SeriousSupport for their local secondary schools.
