The Donegal Volunteer Centre is focused on supporting volunteers and local groups by connecting people to opportunities to help support a vast array of community initiatives, and the mission of The Donegal Gathering is exactly the same.”In response to this magnificent gesture, Barney McLaughlin, County Co-ordinator, said,”We are thrilled to receive such support from our friends in the Donegal Volunteer Centre. The Gathering is about harnessing the energy of our people and demonstrating to ourselves and others exactly what we are capable of with a little community spirit and enthusiasm.“I ask every Donegal person, at home and abroad, to get behind The Gathering, and ensure that you don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to celebrate all that’s great about Donegal”.Meanwhile, TV3 and The Gathering are offering one viewer €5,000 towards flights to bring whoever you want, from wherever you want in the world to attend your Gathering in 2013. The Donegal Gathering is calling on individuals, families, clubs, communities to organise gatherings, big and small. All you have to do is fill in your details and, in 300 words or less, explain the idea you have for your gathering and who you’d choose to bring home from abroad to take part.For further information on the competition check out: DONEGAL VOLUNTEER CENTRE RALLIES THE TROOPS FOR DONEGAL GATHERING was last modified: November 21st, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
