CRADLE EVENTS

Cradle regularly hold fundraising events in towns and venues throughout Ireland including fashion shows, coffee mornings, live music events. We even had the world’s largest “ring-a-rosie” with children in Waterford, breaking a Guinness World Record! Cradle also receives funds raised from a variety of different events and fundraisers organised by individuals and local groups throughout Ireland and the UK.

FESTIVAL REPUBLIC MUSIC FESTIVALS AND EVENTS

Much of Cradle’s fundraising is done through the Festival Republic music festivals and concerts in the UK and Ireland. We have a loyal group of volunteers who form the ‘Sound as a Pound’ crew at the Reading & Leeds festivals each year.

VHI WOMEN’S MINI-MARATHON

Cradle has been participating in the Women’s Mini-Marathon for many years and each year it grows in its success as a fundraiser. Every year on the June Bank Holiday Monday, a large group of women come together in Dublin to run, walk or stroll the 10 kilometers, raising funds for Cradle through their efforts. We are constantly recruiting new volunteers for the Mini-Marathon so if you, you friends or female relatives are interested in a fun day out whilst raising much needed funds for our projects overseas, please contact us.

FOOD APPEAL

At least once every year Cradle holds a food (and personal hygiene products) collection which gathers huge amounts of essential goods needed by families in Bosnia-Herzegovina and Albania. These collections add to the truck loads of other goods such as medical supplies and new clothing which we distribute to the countries we work in.

CHRISTMAS SHOEBOX APPEAL

Every year Cradle holds a nationwide Christmas Shoebox Appeal which, as you can imagine, is always a huge success with the children of Bosnia-Herzegovina and Albania!
Following the recession we have also begun donating to children in need in Ireland. In this appeal, Cradle asks school children, businesses and individuals to fill a shoebox with a variety of products and gifts for children who otherwise, may not receive any Christmas presents.
The items which can be included in the Shoe Boxes include, Hygiene Products, Clothing (new) and Special gifts such as crayons, exercise books, toys etc. If you are interested in getting involved in Cradle’s Shoe Box Appeal please contact us on the
Contact Us page for more information.
