World Mental Health Day Coffee Morning
Michael McDermott, Shannon McColgan, Anna McLaughlin and Grace Diver promoting world mental health day in front of a board full of positive messages and information on local resources.
In honour of World Mental Health Day (10th of October), a team from Shopfront and the Moville FRC organised a coffee morning in Taoibh na Cille at the top of the town. There was plenty of sandwiches, cakes and bakes and enough tea and coffee for the whole of Moville! It was a lovely, busy morning with people calling in for a catch up and to read the board that was put together in aid of the day. There was information highlighted about the importance of your mental well being and some positive messages to think about. Donation boxes were placed around the room and proceeds were donated to Pieta House which is a free support service for anyone copingwith mental health issues. It was a lovely way to bring the community together and show support on this important day.
Moville FRC win an Award of €5,000 at Coca Cola's 'Thank You Fund' Launch
Martin Lynch(Moville FRC coordinator), Niamh Burns and Jack McLaughlin with the 'Thank You Fund' Award at the Coca Cola Launch.
The 'Coca-Cola Thank You Fund' is an initiative that was set up in 2011 marking the 125th anniversary for Coca-Cola. The initiative sets out to give back to the communities of Ireland. The theme of this year was inspired to donate and support young people across the communities of Ireland and Northern Ireland. And this year Coca-Cola donated €100,000,000 across the country to 12 organisations nationally that were chosen from over 200 that applied for the funding. Moville Family Resource Centre's Shopfront youth programme was one of the lucky 12 chosen organisations throughout Ireland that received the funding for their innovative Shopfront Radio project. Niamh and Jack, two of the young people involved in the project travelled to Dublin with Martin Lynch coordinator of MFRC to receive the 'Coca-Cola Thank You Award' in the National Sports Campus in Blanchardstown. It was a great day out that put Moville and the work of Shopfront and its youth on the map nationally. Well done to all involved and keep an eye out for the Shopfront Radio Project locally in 2020!
