Dublin Bus is calling on all voluntary and community groups throughout the city to make a submission for their 2018 Community Spirit Awards.

The initiative provides funding for these groups to develop new projects, improve their locality and help raise community spirit.

Dublin senior footballing hero and founder of HalfTimeTalk CLG charity Philly McMahon helpedlaunch of the Community Spirit Awards for 2018 ,which took place last month at the official reopening of the One Family early years crèche in Smithfield.

One Family, Ireland’s organisation for people parenting alone, sharing parenting, and separating with the help of a €5,000 Dublin Bus Community Spirit Award have refurbished its Early Years Service. They worked with the Men’s Shed from Kells, Co. Meath to fit out and equip the crèche with good quality furniture for the babies and toddlers who access their service.

Speaking at the launch about the impact of a €5,000 grant on his charity, HalfTimeTalk CLG last year, Philly McMahon said; “The grant gives us the ability to provide more programmes and support for youths that will reinforce the self-belief that they have a right and potential to be the best that they can be. I would encourage all voluntary and community groups to make an application for a Dublin Bus Community Spirit Award – the money will go a long way.”

Dublin Bus Chief Executive Ray Coyne added; “Philly is a role model to young people across Dublin and especially in his local area in Ballymun where, through his charity HalfTimeTalk CLG, he educates, trains and empowers young, unemployed adults. We were delighted to be able to support his charity with a €5,000 grant and we know there are many more Philly McMahons in community groups across the Greater Dublin Area who we want to encourage and support. Our Awards highlight the heroes in our local communities who give up their time to give something back and improve the lives of others where they live.”

Application forms for the 2018 Community Spirit Awards are available now at www.dublinbus.ie and will be accepted up to 17.00 this Friday, 29 June 2018. Any voluntary and community group based in the Greater Dublin Area is eligible to apply for a grant of €1,000, €2,000 or €5,000.
