Community Heroes Winner!

We are delighted to announce our Community Heroes Winner as This Is Me Neurodiversity! ????
We were delighted to invite customers and the public to nominate their local Community Heroes for the chance to be awarded with €1,000 sponsorship. We had a great number of entries and nominations for a variety of clubs, schools, groups and associations.
It was difficult to choose one winner, but we received numerous entries for local group This Is Me Neurodiversity. They are a group of parents with Neurodivergent children that have set up a support and social group. Their membership has grown to over 5,000 which shows the need for support and social outlet. They run weekly sessions of Active club and dance classes. Plus, for parents they have coffee support mornings and wellness sessions every month. They hold subsidised drop off camps for children during the school holidays which also provides much needed respite for families.
They also hold regular webinars which are free to members and are facilitated by speech and language therapists. This Is Me Neurodiversity want to create an environment for families where they are supported and given an opportunity to express themselves and develop friendships.
Nutgrove Shopping Centre Manager, Steven Stocks commented “We hope this money helps This Is Me Neurodiversity continue the wonderful work they do within our local community”.
