We hit our €7,000 Fundraising Target for The Down Syndrome Centre Cork!
Thank you to everyone who has donated & supported this campaign!
All money raised will go directly to The Down Syndrome Centre Cork.
We are overwhelmed at the generosity of donations received for The Down Syndrome Centre Cork fundraising campaign. Like many charities, The Down Syndrome Centre Cork missed out on many fundraising opportunities due to Covid-19 restrictions. Ballymaloe Foods wanted to help out by running a fundraising competition with a fantastic prize to help raise essential funds for the centre. We set a target of €7,000 and we are delighted to have exceeded that target by raising €8,721 for the centre. Thank you to everyone who has donated and helped spread the word along the way.
Congratulations to Laura Donnellan the lucky winner of a family break to Center Parcs Ireland with €500 spending money!
Down Syndrome Centre Cork
The Down Syndrome Centre Cork was founded in 2017 in response to a recognised need in the Cork region for the provision of support and facilities for families and carers of young children with Down Syndrome. The centre is run by volunteers and offers diagnosis support and early intervention services for children (up to the age of seven) and their parents. The centre also builds lasting friendships between like-minded people who understand, first-hand, the challenges faced by families dealing with Down Syndrome. They hold regular coffee mornings, toddler group meetings and fun social events. The Down Syndrome Centre Cork is a registered charity and does not receive any government funding. They rely solely on the generosity of people’s donations and fundraisers. Their goal is to see all children with Down Syndrome thrive and enjoy an independent and fulfilling life, where they are fully integrated and accepted in their communities
