    Event Description

    We are once again delighted to be able to welcome our guest speakers from our Med Day Charities This lauch is highly recommended to everyone collecting for Med Day as it puts a face to who we get out in the cold at 7:30 in the morning and fundraise for. There will also be tea, coffee and FREE PIZZA for all those attending! We are privileged to host Jonathan, the founder of Jack and Jill, who will give us insight on the brilliant work his charity. Jack and Jill provides services for young children and babies with brain damage or severe developmental delays. Emily from ALONE will also be joining us to talk about their brilliant work with the elderly. We will also be joined by a guest to provide information on our third main charity, Saplings School. The Saplings Schools are co-educational specialist schools, providing quality education for pupils with autism and complex needs. Each school offers a range of child-centred, autism specific education which draws on a range of evidence based interventions. You can find out more about these great charities on their websites: http://alone.ie/ http://www.saplings.org/ https://www.jackandjill.ie/ Med Day collection team leaders to pick up the buckets and t-shirts for their teams after the talk. This is fantastic opportunity to get some extra inspiration for Med Day!
