Plan International Ireland warmly welcomes sponsors to their annual Supporter Event on Saturday 30th March. The event will start at 11am and will finish at 1pm. You will have the chance to hear about some of Plan International Ireland’s current programmes, and have an opportunity to chat with Plan International staff.
Hear from Anne Marie McCarthy and Barbara Scettri, Plan International’s programme managers, about the changes to childhood made possible by Plan International supporters like you. See the progress and learn about the ambitious plans for the future of children’s education. Hear stories from the field, and see exactly what your support means to the people who need it most.
There will be a showcase of a few of our programmes – just a snapshot of the work we do with sponsored children and other vulnerable communities in need all over the world.
Some light refreshments will be provided, including tea, coffee and scones. For kids there will be will be a special spread of juice and cookies.
Kids will have the chance to write to your sponsored child, in our special Sponsorship Post Office. Feel free to drop off a letter or gift, or design your own on the day. Please see the guidelines for sending gifts here.
Guests of this event are free to stay in the Airfield Estate for the rest of the day should they wish.
Take the LUAS tram from St Stephen’s Green in the heart of the city, to the Balally stop. Turn right when you exit the station, walk up the hill and you can’t miss it. The following Dublin Buses will bring you to Dundrum village and drop you within a few minutes’ walk of Airfield Estate. The 11, 14, 14C, 44, 44B, 75, 116 and 175 will all get you there.
While we encourage you to take public transport, we understand it is not possible for everyone. There is parking available, and you can reach venue by taking the M50 to Junction 13, follow the R825 for one mile to Overend Way and turning into the right.
