CHARITY FUNDRAISING

MED WEEK 2022

October 3rd - 7th

Féileacáin is a not for profit organisation that provides support to anyone affected by the death of a baby during or after pregnancy. Feileacain was formed by a group of bereaved parents to offer support to anyone affected by the death of a baby around the time of birth.

Supports provided:

  • Support meetings for parents and children

  • Long Ago Bereaved support services

  • Gifts Of Remembrance services

  • Memory Boxes

UCD Med Week is our annual charity fundraising event. It normally involves a number of specific fundraising events, all culminating with Med Day which sees members of the Society hit the streets of Dublin, shaking buckets to collect donations for the chosen charity.

 

Med Week brings students from every level within the school together and gives us a chance to give back to our community by donating our time and efforts to raise funds for charity.

After an amazing Med Week last year, we are back on the streets and back in-person. We hope to raise as much as possible this year for Féileacáin. But for that we need your help!
