The hard-working team behind Spraoi Agus Spórt in Carndonagh has picked up another Charity Impact Award this year.
The family centre last night scooped the Social Enterprise of the Year Award for the second year running.
Spraoi agus Spórt provides social, recreational and educational activities to the community of Carndonagh.
Spraoi agus Spórt was initially set up as a Parent and Toddler Group to address the lack of activities for young families in Inishowen.
It all began when in 2010, when friends Helen Nolan, Ailbhe Hickey, Louise Grant, Helen Doherty and Kathleen Gallagher were desperately in need of a social outlet as young mothers, as were many of their friends.
It has since evolved into a vibrant family hub which improves the quality of life for families in the area. The workshops, events and afterschool care play a key role in the Carndonagh community.
Spraoi agus Spórt activities are hosted in five units around Carndonagh with a large team of full-time staff, freelance facilitators and Special Needs Assistants.
They now over 60 fully-inclusive activities, classes and holiday camps for the whole community.
The Charity Impact Awards were presented at an event in the Mansion House in Dublin on Tuesday.
Presented by The Wheel, the national association of charities, community and voluntary organisations and social enterprises, the Charity Impact Awards celebrate the positive impact these organisations, and the individuals behind them, make in the lives of millions of people in Ireland and beyond.
