Saplings

A young Sapling properly nurtured can grow into a strong tree.


Saplings provide a unique education for children with autism. Here, in Kill village, Saplings are held very close within our community’s heart.  
 
In recent years, Kill Senior Ladies Footballers have organised numerous successful quizzes. COVID-19 has brought an unforeseen time in our lives. So, we have decided to host a virtual quiz, and on this occasion all proceeds are going to Saplings.

To join our virtual quiz, we are asking for a donation of €5.00. There is no limit on donations! All support, however big or small is as always greatly appreciated.
