Anam Cara is commemorating 5 years of supporting bereaved parents in communities throughout Ireland. Recognising the intensity of the grief that follows the loss of son or daughter, their online and face to face services are available to all parents regardless of the age of their child or the circumstances of death. 

Currently Anam Cara does not receive any state funding and as their services are provided free of charge to families, they organise a variety of activities each year to help raise the funds to meet the costs. 

Would you consider donating a couple of hours on Saturday 30th November 2013, to assist with their 2013 National Bag Pack in a Dunnes Stores close to you? 

Last year, this event helped Anam Cara grow public awareness of their organisation and funds to offset against the cost of running our front-line services. 

If you know anyone who would consider helping out on the day, please forward on this information to them. The only requirement is that they need to be 14 years or older. This is to meet with Dunnes Stores Bag Packing requirements. 

At every Dunnes Stores there will be an Anam Cara representative to assist in the smooth operations of the bag pack. Also in the case a member of the public or their family has been affected by the death of a child, the Anam Cara representative will be able to give them information about our services. 

This event sounds a long way off, however they would be delighted to hear from you, if you think you can help out on the day in any way.
