*** Fundraise for RISE this Christmas ***

The countdown to Christmas is well underway! We need your help as we are in urgent need of funds to run our therapeutic Family Programmes in 2013.

The festive season is traditionally a great time to fundraise as people are generally in a giving mood, so here are some fundraising ideas in the run-up-to Christmas:

- Have a cardless Christmas at work/home and make a donation instead
- Workplace corporate donation instead of corporate gifts
- Hold a Christmas Raffle at work
- Carol singing (in local school/shopping centre etc)

Sober St. Patrick's Day

"Sober St. Patrick’s Day is an opportunity to redefine who we are as a people, to combat the "Drunken Irish" stereotype."
