SHARE the love this year

Wednesday, 13th November, 2019 4:46pm

If there’s one thing that’s a certainty on the city streets every Christmas, it’s the SHARE collection.

The Students Harness Aid for the Relief of the Elderly (SHARE) fundraising campaign is in its 50th year this year which offers care and support to its residents, who are living across 146 secure housing units around Cork.

SHARE extends the hand of hope to those in its care in many ways. The Brother Jerome Kelly Day Care Centre in Sheare’s Street which can cater for up to 125 people weekly, provides a range of practical services to the residents of the organisation, including medical and non-medical services, meals, a laundry service, social games and events and a network of support to help them integrate into the community and meet like-minded individuals in a bright, warm environment.

Another key element to SHARE's commitment to Cork’s older demographic is the yearly Fast and Fundraising campaign, which takes place each December and involves heavy participation from Cork’s student community.

This year, the wonderful volunteers of SHARE are once again gearing up to embrace the true meaning of Christmas by doing their bit for the residents. In just over a month, loads of fourth and fifth-year students from participating Cork schools will don the famous yellow jackets as they take to the city centre streets in the lead up to Christmas in order to raise vital funds for the organisation and to ensure the continuation of their many services throughout the year.

Members of the public, during the annual ten-day Fast and Fundraising Campaign, will be invited to visit and donate at the SHARE Crib at Daunt’s Square.
