We are having the annual charity tea party on Saturday June 9th from 1-5 PM.
This year it is in aid of Cope Foundation in Skibbereen and all proceeds from the garden entry fees all day and the afternoon cake sales will go to Cope Foundation.
It is extra special this year since The Ewe Experience celebrate our 25th year in West Cork and we are delighted to be supporting Cope Foundation.
Cope Foundation supports 2,350 children and adults of every ability to live life their way. They work to enhance the lives of people with an intellectual disability and/or autism; working in partnership with them, their families and local communities to provide a broad range of person centred services and supports. They offer these services and supports through a network of 69 locations all over Cork City and County. Cope Foundation Centres/Supports can be found dotted throughout Cork city as well as: Ballincollig; Mitchelstown; Fermoy; Midleton; Cobh; Carrigaline; Clonakilty; Bandon; Skibbereen; Macroom; Kanturk and Mallow.
Cope Foundation have a strong network of families and supporters in the west Cork area and their fundraising efforts benefit the services in so many ways. Fundraising is a very important part of the work. Fundraising income allows Cope to do more for the people they support, ensuring they live a life of their choosing, connected to and participating in, their communities.
The annual charity day at The Ewe Experience has benefitted a wide range of causes, including Crumlin Children’s Hospital, The Irish Heart Foundation, Cork Cancer Research Centre, Rehabcare, The National Learning Network, Bantry Hospice, The Alzheimer Society, Rural Animal Welfare Resources (RAWR), Bantry Care For The Aged, CoAction and most recently Cork ARC Cancer Support House.
Our Wishing Well, where visitors throw coins into a sculpture flower bowl, has also contributed to a range of charities, including Pieta House, suicide & self-harm prevention centre in Cork, and Bumbleance, The Children's National Ambulance Service.
