Celebrate the Y
Based in our Aungier St. facility, on ‘Celebrate the Y’ day we aim to cater for all ages. Childcare are entertained by puppets or a magician in the morning, and also get to play on the bouncy castles throughout the day.
Bouncy castles aren’t just for the kids; after their BBQ lunch, staff get time to bounce before the youth group comes in and takes their turn.
There are a number of various activities throughout the day before an evening movie. This movie is accompanied by pizza and popcorn for all the users and volunteers of the Y. We are always delighted when staff from our corporate sponsor arrive to help serve the food and get to know some of the locals and see our work in action.
Central to our community work, YMCA Dublin currently hosts two community events annually. These events are sponsored by our corporate partners are days of great fun and excitement for the general public as well as staff.
Family Fun Day
In August, we travel to our Sandymount location for a day of bouncy castles, crafts, face painting, games and a BBQ.
This one day event draws a big crowd every year and even bus loads come from West Dublin YMCA.
Again we are thankful to volunteers and corporate sponsors who without their support, this event couldn’t happen. We are always looking at ways of continually giving to the community and showing that they are valued. This free event hopefully does just that.
The YMCA Dublin Christmas Tree Sale is our annual fundraiser. Each year we want to sell as many Christmas trees as possible to make a huge difference to the young people we work with!
Our trees are Irish-grown, high quality Normann Fir Christmas trees, ranging in height from 4ft to 12ft. Our trees are priced at €10 per foot, and we also sell stands for the tree for €10 each. We take cash, card or cheques.
CANCELLED FOR 2021
