Issue 1219 – Three Ways Youth Project host successful Coffee Morning fundraiser

August 8, 2016

On Saturday 6th August the Three Ways Youth Project held a very successful coffee morning in the local community centre. The young people responsible for organising this fundraising event form part of a very positive youth programme which has been in existence for over 12 years supporting young people to reach their true potential.  The young peer leaders within the project are continuously tasked with raising money to support both their own developmental programme and they also help to raise funds for other worthwhile charities.
The money raised at the coffee morning will help to fund their programme moving forward providing new resources to support their learning and development. At a time when funding for such projects is being reduced, the young people involved have had to become more self-sufficient in acquiring new avenues of funding to help them to deliver their projects,
The project is supported by volunteer youth workers, Padraig Harte, Joanne McAteer, Amy O’Gorman and Adele Harte who are to be congratulated for giving their time and support to all the young people.
Nathan Crudden, a participant on the programme thanked the workers for their support adding,
“As young people we need direction in our lives and at times we can feel excluded, but in Three Ways we are given unique opportunities to develop and deliver our own programmes and this makes us feel empowered and part of our community.”
The young people offered their thanks to all the sponsors and support received on the day,  to the Three Ways CA, to the Corn Dolly, the Shelbourne Bakery, The Bread Shop, the parents who helped out and to all the elected members who attended and supported the event.
