ODVSS runs various events and campaigns throughout the year to continue to raise vital funds to provide essential services for victims of domestic violence and abuse.
Fundraising Events for 2019
ODVSS depend on the generosity of the public to support all our fundraisers and are very grateful for all the support given to the organization whether it be running fundraisers, assisting with events, collecting donations, giving out information, walking, running, swimming, sky diving or any other activity to help with our events.
UNITea Against Domestic Violence 2019
UNITea is our annual County Tea Morning that runs throughout the month of May. We held successful Tea Mornings this year in Supervalu Banagher and Birr, as well as The Bridge Centre Tullamore, raising awareness and providing much needed information in regards to the services provided by Offaly Domestic Violence Support Service, including Outreach Clinics and Court Accompaniment. Funds raised came to €297.40. Thank you to Supervalu and The Bridge Centre for accommodating us.
VHI Women's Mini Marathon 2019
The VHI Dublin Women's Mini Marathon took place on the 3rd of June 2019. The Mini Marathon invites all women to take part. The mini marathon is a great 10km event for women to walk, jog or run together and achieve their own personal goals while raising much needed funds for hundreds of charities across the country. Over 25,000 ladies and men in drag took part this year and our participants for ODVSS brought in €760 so far this year. Thank you all those who took part and chose ODVSS as their charity.
Church Gate Collection Offaly 2019
This year we are holding church gate collections in Kilcormac, Mountbolus, Rhode, Croghan, Edenderry, Banagher and Lusmagh, as well as our annual collection in Tullamore. Every year, the people of Tullamore have always given generously to our church gate collections which help to support our services throughout the county of Offaly. This year, we are expanding our church gate collections to some of the surrounding areas of Offaly and I am sure the people of these areas will be just as generous. The collections will take place throughout the summer, so keep an eye on local church newsletters to find out when we are in each area. As always, the staff at ODVSS would like to thank the people who give money and also thank board members and volunteers who help with the organising and collecting of funds for this annual event.
