The Family Centre, Castlebar is delighted to let people know that we have collected €33,000 in their fundraising campaign, they are a third of the way to their goal.
A spokesperson for the Family Centre said: "A sincere thanks to all who have donated on our GO FUND ME page, on our website through the DONATE button and all who called to the centre or posted in donations. A “MÍLE BUIOCHAS” to all our contributors but we need to keep going for another while. So here is a little reminder of our campaign:
"We are gathering your reflections on living through the lockdown, an extraordinary time, a challenging time. We truly are living through history, for many a life-changing event and we believe it is important for us to pause, reflect and say what it was like for us. This is our invitation to you. “How was it for you?”
"We want to hear your responses and invite you to write it, draw it, send a photo, a video clip, a word, an audio clip, sing it, dance it whatever works for you. Have a look on our Facebook page to view some wonderful examples that are unique, inspirational, and quite amazing.
"Donate €5 or more and share your reflection with us as an individual, a couple, a family, a group of friends, a business, work colleagues, an organisation, a company.
"This reflection is about you and your experience, so you choose how best to do that. You can include your full name, first name, occupation, or anonymously whichever suits you best. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TFCCastlebar/
