Cappataggle Jumble Sale
A most successful Jumble Sale was held recently at Cappataggle community centre and we thank everyone who took part and everyone who donated items. It was a huge team effort by our volunteers for which we are most grateful.

Chernobyl Anniversary 'Strictly Come Dancing 2015'

A Special Appeal to Help Special Needs Orphans
We are appealing for your help to enable our volunteers to start badly needed humanitarian projects to help 260 special needs children at Bogushevsk orphanage who are the innocent victims of abandonment and neglect. Just now we are focusing our efforts on helping the most severely disabled children who are cot bound since birth and are totally dependent on 24 hour care.

Charity Cook Book
We are delighted to refer you to a very special children's cookbook entitled "Russian To The Kitchen!". The book is filled with traditional Russian recipies and it's author is a 13 year old boy called Alex who was adopted to Ireland and who is dedicating all of the proceeds to The Children Of Russia Fund, a charity set up by adopters in Ireland to help children in Russian orphanages who sadly will never have the chance of adoption. You can order a copy through their website

Humanitarian Trip To Belarus
A group of 12 volunteers completed a ten day humanitarian trip to Belarus where they installed a sensory room for special needs children at Bogushevsk Orphanage. During the trip the volunteers also redecorated the children's bedrooms and play areas.
