This year you must have raised at least €150 by 30th May 2015 to secure your festival ticket.

In 2014 we funded some fantastic projects in Barnardos, The Irish Youth Foundation and Special Olympics Ireland. In 2013 cyclists and runners raised funds for Laois Hospice, Laura Lynn House, Thank You Crumlin, Love Mia and a host of local funds in Stradbally. We’re really looking forward to making 2015 even better and are delighted to be working to raise funds for IYF, Special Olympics, and the ISPCC”.

ISPCC is one of Ireland’s oldest children’s charities. We provide vital listening and mentoring support services to thousands of children and their families each year. Childline is the ISPCC’s most well-known service.

Childline is Ireland’s only nationwide 24 hour Children’s listening service; it is free and available to all children in Ireland up to 18 years of age.

Children contact Childline to discuss issues such as depression, loneliness, abuse, self-harm, bullying, issues at home and at school and concerns about alcohol, drugs and sexuality. Some children contact us simply because they have no one else to talk to.

Childline responded to over 450,000 phone & online contacts from children in 2014 however a shortage in funds is currently threatening this service. With your support we can help keep Childline open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – letting children and young people in Ireland know that there will always be a place to turn when they need to talk. 

Tour de Picnic will…

Help train 20 new volunteers with the necessary skills to answer calls and support these children in their time of need

Provide support to approximately 4,000 confused or frightened children before the end of 2015

Help to keep Childline available to young people 24 hours a day

When a child takes the brave step to make that call you will ensure someone is there to listen, thank you.

The Irish Youth Foundation exists tomake a positive difference to the lives of vulnerable children and young people.

We provide grants to groups working with at-risk and disadvantaged children.  These groups provide safe places where children and young people can go after school – to grow, to learn and to play.  

For children who often experience poverty, parental misuse of drugs, and alcohol, crime and mental health issues, these projects are beacons of hope which enhance and improve their lives.

The IYF has raised over €20 million and supported 1,700 projects on the island of Ireland, reaching 50,000 young people.
