Clare Youth Action recognised for their volunteering work.
Clare Youth Action are a group that has been founded and supported by “North West Clare Family Resource Centre” and operates out of their building in Ardnaculla, Ennistymon.
This group of young people living in the Ennistymon area have been "volunteering locally with different charities and worthy causes". Projects have ranged from "Random acts of Kindness" and "Family Fun” days to raising money for various local groups.
An example of this is that they helped raise money for "Burren Chernobyl Project" who run orphanages in Belarus and in particular they raised money for “Saveli”, a little boy over there in need of a life saving operation. They also recently raised 117 euro from a bake sale which they donated to the Mid West Rape Crisis Centre.
