As Northern Ireland’s oldest peacebuilding organisation, Corrymeela has been shining a light for peace for nearly 60 years. Every year we support thousands of people from different communities to live well together, through residentials at our Ballycastle Centre and in groups throughout Northern Ireland and beyond.
One person whose life has been lit up by Corrymeela is Nicole—read her story here and see how your donation makes a huge difference!
‘I had a difficult start in life but over the years Mona, the volunteers and staff at Corrymeela shone a light in my life that made such a huge difference. Corrymeela is the best thing that happened to me’ — Nicole
This Christmas, you can light up a life by:
1. Shining a light for friends and family:
Make a direct online donation, light up a star on our virtual, online Christmas Tree and dedicate a message of goodwill and hope for family, friends, your community or yourself. The perfect Christmas gift!
2. Shining a light for Peace on your tree—at home, at work, at school:
Together is better… does your school/workplace/household want to band together to shine a light for peace? We will send you a tag for every donor to personalise—use them to decorate your own tree as a reminder that you have made a difference. Ask for a donation for each tag and light up a life! Get in touch for more info.
3. Inviting others to shine a light for peace:
Organise your own fundraising event—a bake sale, coffee break, raffle, sponsored event…you decide! Donate the proceeds and we will light a star on our virtual tree. Dedicate a message of goodwill and send a picture of your event for the tree and our social media channels.
