Angels in November

Irish Wheelchair Association in Clonakilty will officially launch its national fundraising campaign Angels in November. The event will take place in the IWA Community Centre in Clonakilty on Friday, November 1 at 12pm. Afternoon tea will be served and all are welcome to attend.

Service user Marco Sabatini Corleone, who has shown incredible strength and bravery over the past year in particular, is the IWA Ambassador this year. In sharing his story, Marco will be talking about why he believes it is so important to support IWA and the impact the service has had on his quality of life.

Volunteers will be selling the beloved Angel pins and other Angel-themed products throughout Clonakilty, Skibbereen, Dunamanway and Bandon on Thursday, November 7 and Friday, November 8.

Irish Wheelchair Association’s Angel fundraiser will help provide a range of essential services to people with physical disabilities from its community centre in West Cork and across the country. Irish Wheelchair Association provides a diverse range of services supporting people with disabilities in their personal development and community life.

 In 2018 alone, Irish Wheelchair Association provided over 1.3 million hours of Assisted Living Services to 2,246 adults and children across Ireland and almost 80,000 days of services in community centres nationwide. Its fleet of 119 buses provided people with disabilities with accessible transport throughout Ireland to connect them to their communities. 

Volunteers will be selling Angel pins outside all ALDI stores and on the streets.  If you meet any of the volunteers please purchase an Angels pin or make a donation to ensure people with disabilities can enjoy equal rights, choices and opportunities and live their lives independently.

This November Irish Wheelchair Association is asking community groups, organisations, businesses, and schools in Clonakilty, Skibbereen, Dunmanway and Bandon to volunteer their time to assist with the Angels Appeal. There are lots of ways to get involved; including volunteering to sell Angels pins/products or hosting a coffee morning during November.
