The Irish Wheelchair Association is hosting a national fundraising day on Thursday, September 29 and has called Dubliners to support the campaign.
The event is the charity’s largest and most important fundraising day and will see staff and volunteers at centres and other on-street locations in the county shaking buckets in a bid to help raise €100,000 in vital funding on Thursday, September 29.
Over 20,000 people benefit from services provided by the Irish Wheelchair Association across sport, accessible homes, transport, assisted living services and community centre services which provide a social outlet for members to make friends and develop lifelong skills as well as combatting loneliness and isolation.
Sinead Christian, Head of Fundraising at the Irish Wheelchair Association said:“The School Leavers Programme is providing students with vital life-enhancing skills which enable people with disabilities to live a more independent life. This is just one of the broad range of vital services that the Irish Wheelchair Association is providing across the country. We are calling on the public to please support us on Thursday, September 29th by giving what you can to our bucket collectors or donate online at www.iwa.ie.”
Staff at the Irish Wheelchair Association’s 57 centres across Ireland will be shaking buckets in the hope of raising funds to ensure the rights and needs of people with disabilities are met.
