Galway Cultural Institute / Galway Business School is committed to various community services in our city and our staff is dedicated to offer support and assistance to various charity causes throughout the year through the school. We also inform and support our students in getting involved as much as possible in volunteer opportunities that often come across our path.
Among the most successful events that we have organised this year include:
A cake sale for Daffodil Day – On Daffodil Day thousands of volunteers around Ireland sell daffodil pins and flowers (on streets, in businesses, homes and shopping centres) to raise money for the Irish Cancer Society’s free, nationwide services for those with, and affected by, cancer in Ireland. Daffodil Day is the biggest and longest running fundraising day for the Society, Ireland’s national cancer charity. Staff and students in our school baked, bought cakes, volunteered and donated to our fundraising for Daffodil Day. Together we raised €902.92 for the Irish Cancer Society and we were absolutely delighted with the response we’ve gotten from people for such a good cause!
Another fruitful charity event was for MADRA. MADRA is a volunteer dog rescue and adoption group run by qualified dog trainers. MADRA’s ultimate and overall aim is that all dogs have permanent, loving homes. We wish to help create a world where no healthy, good-natured dogs are killed merely because they are considered to be a surplus number. All money raised went to the charity.
