Barnardos National Collection Day - Friday September 14th

Tonight 1 in 9 children in Cork will go to bed hungry because they are living in Poverty. 

Barnardos is calling on the people of Cork to support their National Collection Day kindly supported by Dell taking place across Cork today. All donations will go towards the charity’s work in ending the nightmare that is child poverty.

Poverty affects every aspect of a child’s life, which has short and long-term consequences on their health, education outcomes and life chances. Barnardos who has project centres in Mahon, Knocknaheeny & Youghal, provide a lifeline to children - giving them a safe space, a friendly face and proven programmes to help them escape the vicious cycle of poverty and improve their lives, no matter their circumstance.

To help, please give what you can to Barnardos collectors in your local area or donate now online at
