The following is a brief outline of how you can help with some of our main forms of Fundraising. 

Event Fundraising

We are delighted to be able to share that we now have our own online Fundraising Events platform. This means no more using other platforms for your Fundraising events and just using our website!

This will help us track our events and help reduce the fees that occur when using external Fundraising platforms e.g. Gofundme, idonate, justgiving etc. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Fundraising department: Susan Nolan - 063-21679
