  • Skydiving into the Light for Pieta House

    Chloe Weston-Doyle and I are skydiving for Pieta House Darkness into Light on May 8th 2021. We are skydiving 21st June! We want to raise money to help provide mental health services to those who are in desperate need.  We decided to get out of our comfort zones and skydive as our challenge.

    Hopefully the thoughts of seeing our reactions in the aftermath videos will influence people even more to donate! 
    The past year has been difficult for many people, even those who have never suffered with any mental health problems before,  All help and donations will be very much appreciated ♥️ GoFundMePage

  • Over 100 Irish Charities are taking on the World together this Saturday the 19th of June! 

    In an unprecedented campaign, over 100 Irish Charities are joining together to show solidarity across the sector and finally start to put Covid-19 behind the non for profit sector. The key message of this campaign is that by #doingittogether, we can take on any challenge and achieve great things. 

    The campaign, supported by the Charities Institute Ireland and the Irish online fundraising platform iDonate.ie, is asking the public to visit www.aroundtheworld.ie and pledge a distance to help push everyone around a Virtual World Map. The goal is to collectively travel around the world in just 24 hours (a whopping distance of 42,000 kilometres!). 

    The challenge is open to everyone – all ages and abilities. You can complete any distance you like, doing any activity you like, whether it’s running, walking, cycling, swimming, wheeling, or hopping on one leg! EVERY KILOMETRE COUNTS!


    “It’s been an incredibly difficult time for all charities over the past 18 months. From challenges to how they can offer their services and fundraise, to the personal and professional pressures on staff, we’re hoping that this campaign will mark the beginning of the end of the nightmare that Covid-19 placed on charities and help raises much needed funds across the sector” 

    Brian O’Neill, iDonate.ie


    Starting at midday June 19th and running until midday June 20th, we want YOU to help us go Around the World and raise funds for your favourite cause. If you want to support your favourite Charity by taking part in the Challenge, or by donating on the day just visit www.aroundtheworld.ie and join us in #doingittogether.

    “By #doingitgother we are hoping to not only travel the world, but to help change it!

  • VIRTUAL SUNFLOWER REMEMBRANCE GARDEN’ OFFICIALLY OPENS FOR HOSPICE SUNFLOWER DAYS 2021

    Hospice Sunflower Days are officially here and Together for Hospice, the National Hospice
    Movement, is calling on the public to dedicate a sunflower in memory of a loved one in the Hospice
    ‘Virtual Sunflower Remembrance Garden’. The garden, which will be open throughout the month of
    June, will help raise vital funds for local hospice and specialist palliative home care services
    throughout the country.


    Prompted by the cancellation of the annual Hospice Sunflower Days on-street collection for the
    second year in a row, the ‘Virtual Sunflower Remembrance Garden’ will be open for the full month
    of June at www.togetherforhospice.ie/sunflowerdays. Members of the public can visit the website
    and dedicate a virtual sunflower in memory of a loved one while making a donation to their local
    hospice. The special dedications can be shared with friends and family members to let them know
    they are in your thoughts and funds raised will go directly to your chosen hospice.


    Coordinated by Together for Hospice, The National Hospice Movement, representing 26 hospices and
    home care services nationwide, this new remembrance campaign aims to raise much needed funds
    for hospice and specialist palliative home care services nationwide, whilst also offering an online
    space where loved ones can be remembered and precious memories celebrated, reminding us that
    we are not alone.
