Past Fundraising

Charitable work is a core value of The Girls' Brigade Ireland. Being kind and simply having an awareness of those less fortunate than us, is a valuable lesson to any young person. But the true importance of our fundraising activities, is allowing our girls to see the impact their actions can have. Girls learn that they can make a small difference to someone else's life.

Thank you to the supporters of The Girls’ Brigade Ireland for donating to our chosen charities every year. To our girls, parents, grandparents and friends – Thank you! To anyone who ever baked for a cake sale, walked the streets, sang carols or simply showed up – Thank You!
