Volunteering Opportunity

What is 50808?
We are a free nationwide anonymous 24 hour messaging service providing everything from a calming
chat to immediate support. This service is supported by the Health Service Executive (HSE). 50808 provides a safe space where texters are listened to by trained volunteers.
What do we offer?
We offer a safe, non-judgmental space where people can text us about anything that is making them
feel down. This is not just a platform for those in crisis situations such as being in physical danger from
others or to themselves. We have supported many people who are struggling with relationship
breakdowns, bereavement, feeling stuck in a rut, loneliness or simply feeling down and wanting to talk it
out with us.
More information is available here.

Latteragh Graveyard Mass.

We will be celebrating our annual Mass at Latteragh on Monday evening July the 10th (time to be confirmed, probably 7pm) at Latteragh cemetery. An unattended donations bucket will be placed just inside the cemetery gate for any donations to the ongoing upkeep of the area. Everyone is invited back to the Community centre afterwards for a cup of tea/coffee and light refreshments. The AGM of the carers group will take place and we hope to be able to share some recently recovered film footage of work at Latteragh dating from our startup in 1999. All very welcome.
