Transform More Lives Through Sport

Support the Special Olympics Collection Day Appeal

Special Olympics Ireland needs to raise over €400,000 to fund the growth and development of Special Olympics grassroot programmes. These Sport, Health and Leadership programmes are delivered weekly in our 260 clubs across the country.  

We need to raise these vital funds so we can reach more people with an intellectual disability and transform more lives.

As part of our Collection Day appeal we will be holding our bucket collections in Dublin City Centre and Belfast City Centre next Thursday 18th & in cities and towns across the rest of the country on Friday 19th of April. 

We are so grateful for the response we have received from volunteers, schools and corporates who have generously signed up to volunteer on the day or to hold a fundraiser in aid of Special Olympics Ireland. Over 3000 volunteers including over 75 schools and over 20 companies have signed up to support this day by volunteering to shake bucket.
