RTE 2FM Dress Up For Barnardos

Barnardos, a charity whose work supports vulnerable children and their families, has come together with RTE 2fm this October to change the lives of children all over Ireland. They want volunteers to give of their time in order to raise much-needed funds, all while having a bit of craic! It is easy to get involved and all volunteer gestures will be welcomed, no matter how small. You can corral all your friends into a major dress-up posse and hit the streets with collecting buckets, or simply sponsor someone who is willing to make a fool out of him or herself for a very good cause. The following are some of the ways people can get involved.

A range of smaller events will also be available to participate in if you do not have the time and resources to arrange your own event. For those who can bake, for example, Cheap Eats Dublin will be running a Cake Sale on Saturday 29th October and are asking for one small batch of anything you can whisk up from biscuits to cupcakes. They will be confirming the location of the Cake Sale shortly, simply keep an eye on www.cheapeats.ie for further details.
