Young people from Three Ways Community Association have been busy delivering a number of fundraising initiatives.

It's seen as a way of ‘giving back’ for the support they have received from local funders and groups towards their personal and social development journey and they have raised a fantastic £764.00 for Macmillan Cancer and Cancer Fund for Children. 

Three Ways Youth Project has been in existence for over 15 years and continually advances young people with new skill sets based on their needs have raised thousands of pounds over the years for local charities and causes and again have given back.

In June the young people aged from 12-15 years old held a sponsored 16-hour sit in Three Ways Community Centre.  Over the 16 hours, the young people undertook a number of activities which has given them a new skill set directly supporting their informal education.  After the success of their sit in, the young people held a Coffee Morning in early July with all proceeds going directly to their two chosen charities. 

This week members of Three Ways Group accompanied by Chairperson of Newry, Mourne and Down District Council, Councillor Charlie Casey and Three Ways Community Associations Chairperson, Cathy Keenan presented Aidan Carroll of Macmillan Cancer and Tanya Jackson of Cancer Fund for Children with the proceeds. 


Amy O’Gorman, Youth Project Facilitator said the young people as part of their programme wanted to coordinate fundraising initiatives to support local valuable charities.  “As part of the young people’s programme, they are encouraged to be active citizens and we were pleased when they decided they desired to give something back for the support they have received in particular from the Education Authority, Department for Communities and Newry, Mourne and Down District Council”.

Amy continued, “Their events were a major success and they are overwhelmed with the backing that they have received from the local community and local businesses who assisted in making these events a success.  Our young people selected these charities as the recipients for their efforts as they all agreed that these particular charities support those whom need it most at a time when families lives have been affected by cancer.  Our thanks to all those individuals who sponsored the young people, attended and donated at their coffee morning and to those local businesses including; Corn Dolly, Sunray and The Shelbourne bakeries”. 

Cathy Keenan, Chairperson of Three Ways Community Association commended the young people for their efforts and acknowledged all those who have and continue to support the young people and the association.  “On behalf of Three Ways Community Association, I want to congratulate the young people for raising vital funds for charities.  We in Three Ways CA are proud that our young people always give back for the support they themselves have benefitted from and unreservedly agree they are a credit to their families and our community.  Three Ways CA send our appreciation and thanks to all those who supported the young people in anyway.  I have no doubt the funds donated to these instrumental charities will support those who need it most and we wish them all well”.
