Almost 40 volunteers from RED C Research, recently visited the headquarters of Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) in Clontarf, to transform the Carmel Fallon Holiday Centre and the grounds of the campus, as part of their 10 year anniversary celebrations.
RED C Research selected IWA as their local charity of choice to work with and support on Friday, 16th August, enabling their staff to give back to the community in which they are based.
Approximately 120 people with physical disabilities receive services from IWA in Clontarf on a weekly basis.
The range of programmes offered by the Association from Clontarf includes the Resource and Outreach Centre; Independent Living Units; Assisted Living Services; Wheelchair Solutions – wheelchair sales, rentals and repairs, Sports Hall; Accessible Gym, and the Carmel Fallon Holiday Centre.
The Carmel Fallon Holiday Centre which is a six bed facility, providing accessible and supported holidays and breaks to people with disabilities will be the centre of activity this Friday, with volunteers from Red C Research painting and decorating the living room area and a brand new games area for guests who travel to the holiday centre.
The volunteers will also be assisting IWA with the maintenance and upkeep of the green space areas and garden located on the campus grounds.
