Below are the two charities I’ll be supporting in this event, both charities are close to my heart. The funds I raise will be split evenly between both charities, so any way you can help, however great or small would be greatly appreciated.
Both organisations are also open to volunteers and assistance with fundraising events of your own. Find out more about my chosen charities and the great work they do by visiting their websites.
Irish Deaf Society
The Irish Deaf Association do great work for the deaf community back home in Ireland. Besides being the national representative organisation for the deaf community they are based next to my old school in Dublin. They do great work which I’ve seen first hand when it comes to inclusion, equality and support for the community.
Talk to Tom
Talk To Tom are a community based suicide prevention, mental health awareness and bereavement support charity based in my hometown in Ireland. It is a service run a group of volunteers since it was founded in 2012 and it’s since grown rapidly to help and assist those in need.
