The people of Bunbeg have gone above and beyond to showcase the many services of their beloved community centre in a new appeal of funds.
Ionad Naomh Pádraig is in need of support more than ever at it caters to the local community.
The centre supports people of all ages – who benefit from the community garden, fitness classes, charity, youth clubs, Gweedore First Responders, Meals on Wheels and many more services.
And a highly entertaining video has been created to highlight why the centre needs the backing of the community now.
Many familiar faces, including Fr Ó Fearraigh , have dressed up to take part in the creative film, which has become a big hit locally.
The project has already been a big success as the fundraiser looks set to reach its target in just 24 hours.
Donations have flooded in from near and far to help the committee get within reach of their €6,000 target.

ÁR SCÉAL – OUR STORY
Is mol rathúil, gníomhaíochta é Ionad Naomh Pádraig, lonnaithe i nGaoth Dobhair, agus is é an príomh fócas atá againn nó réimhse leathan gníomhaíochtaí agus seirbhísí a sholáthar, a chuireann go mór le sláinte agus folláine shóisialta ár bPobal.

We serve the needs of children, young people, adults, senior citizens and families, alongside those of public and private organisations, groups and committees, and many more in our community and further afield, thus assisting one and all to realises their dreams.
CAD TUIGHE – WHY?
Faraor, mar thoradh ar na srianta a bhain leis an paindéime, COVID-19, cuireadh tromlach na ngníomhaíochtaí agus na seirbhisí laethúla inár nIonad ar ceal. Cialaíonn an méid seo dúinne, nó go bhfuil ár mbonn giniúna ioncaim laghdaithe go mór ó bhí lár mhí an Mhárta ann.
Like most community Centre’s, we depend on such revenue as a vital source of income, to help us cover running costs and to continue to provide a wide range of activities and services, also going forward, for the imminent development of our community All-Weather Football Pitch, helping us to maximise our impact.
Ní obair ar fad, gan greann nó gáire atá i gcéist! Tá laetha geala romhainn, caithfaidh muid a bheith muiníneach fán méid seo. Le seal anuas anois, bhí muid iontach cruthaitheach, le tréan sport, spraoi agus gáire, agus muid ag eagrú iarrachtaí tiomsaithe airgid. Tá gearrscannán curtha le chéile againn, le taispeáint duit, ar bhealach spraíúil, greannmhar agus siamsúil, cuid de na gníomhaíochtaí a bhfuil baint againn leo agus na seirbhísí a chuireann muid ar fáil in Ionad Naomh Pádraig.
