Fundraiser for Breast Cancer Awareness

We were delighted to raise €1,100 for two fantastic breast cancer charities at our North Wall CDP coffee morning this October. 

Here's our Tina handing over two €550 cheques, the first to Linda Keating of the Marie Keating Foundation.  Linda recently visited our offices where we had a great chat about her charity's work and local lad Stephen Gately, a co-lead singer and founder of Boyzone (together with  Linda's brother, Ronan Keating, of course). 

New football course

Thinking of a career in sport?  Here's another great opportunity from North Wall CDP. 

Our Local Training Initiative (LTI) team have teamed up with League of Ireland team Bohs F.C. to offer a 44-week course in Sport, Recreation and Exercise. This is a QQI level 5 course, packed with different activities - coaching skills,  outdoor trips and multi-sport workshops.  And you'll get a training and meal allowance. Classes will be held in National College of Ireland, Mayor Square, Dublin 1.  The course kicks off on 9th January 2023.

Little Treasures scary day

Our children (and staff it must be said!) love dressing up.  So today was a fun day at Little Treasures Community Crèche.  We had batmen and a few witches, complete with masks, hats and special effects.  For many weeks NWCDP and its community partners have been planning the Big Scream that will take places on Monday 31st October.  

You might see these little people at the parade - you've been warned!

Happy Hallow'een...

Breast Cancer Awareness Coffee Morning - A great success!

Rain could not dampen North Wall CDP's annual Breast Cancer Awareness fundraiser/coffee morning last Friday (21st October). It was our first since Covid lockdown. What a great buzz on Sheriff street - friends and community members all rallied!  We're so grateful for all the support, and want to thank the local businesses and people who donated spot prizes, money and refreshments on the day.  And our staff who made this event happen. 

Coffee morning at North Wall CDP

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month - that's a big deal for us at North Wall CDP.  This Friday (21st October) we're hosting our annual coffee morning. It's a chance to gather, chat and support  friends and family who are living with cancer or  have experienced it in the past. We'll be holding our raffle as well - proceeds will be shared by Breast Cancer Ireland and the Marie Keating Foundation.  Our event starts at Noon.

Surprise meet up!

Our Little Treasures were happy to meet Fireman Sam, Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse today!  They bumped into one another in St. Laurence O'Toole Recreation Centre, just round the corner, to the delight of our babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.   

Mickey Mouse is all dressed up          

Art in the crèche

The children in Little Treasures are enjoying a brush with art! These photos (taken 10 February) are from the first of five sessions in an Early Years Arts Programme which is being delivered in our community crèche.  Artist Cliodhna Noonan facilitated the session, a multi-sensorial experience which she calls 'The Silver Tree'.  Irma Grothuis, NEIC Arts Coordinator, organised the programme.  The children are really enjoying the experience - here's what our childcare workers said:
