Members and Leaders are Jumping for Joy after completing a marathon task
Ratheniska Foróige Club, Co. Laois have been zooming in more ways than one in the past week. Foróige leader Brian Phelan challenged members to run more than the leaders before the next club meeting last Friday night and if the members won, then the leaders would treat them all to pizza as soon as their Foróige Club can reopen.
Carrick-on-Suir Girl has raised €888 for her NYFP
Hannah is a member of Foróige in Carrick-on-Suir Neighbourhood Youth and Family Project. Hannah has started making and selling her own face masks that can be worn to protect against Covid-19. She has had great success with this, and has made €888.
Hannah has donated all of this money to Carrick-on-Suir NYFP, as she said she wanted to give back to a group that has given so much to her over the past couple of years.
We are so proud of Hannah, and also so grateful for the money that she has raised.
Volunteers Make an Enormous Contribution to Irish society
As we come to the end of Foróige's Volunteer Appreciation Week, I am struck by the generosity and selflessness of so many Foróige volunteers - be they leaders in clubs, Mentors in Big Brothers Big Sisters, judges in NFTE, project volunteers or board members. We know that in recent times this generosity has resulted in Foróige volunteers giving close to 400,000 hours of time each year.

Volunteer Appreciation Week launches today with a short message from Foróige CEO Seán Campbell
Volunteers bring invaluable life experience to all that they do for the young people of Foróige. To show our volunteers how much we value the time that they so generously give we are hosting a Volunteer Appreciation Week, this week we have lots of events arranged, we have a talk with RTÉ's 'Raised by the Village' Stella O'Malley to help you remember the importance of self-care and personal well-being to volunteers Tab time.
