Groups urged to enter Dublin Bus Community Spirit Awards
LOCAL voluntary groups are being urged to enter the 10th annual Dublin Bus Community Spirit Awards.
The Community Spirit Awards provides voluntary groups across the Greater Dublin Area with support to develop new projects, grow services and help raise community spirit in their local community.
Any voluntary group which is located within the area Dublin Bus services operate is eligible to apply for a grant of €1,000, €2,000 or €5,000. Dublin Bus Community Spirit Awards application forms are available from www.dublinbus.ie
Speaking in his role as patron of the Dublin Bus Community Spirit Awards Niall Quinn said: 'I have been involved with the Community Spirit Awards since they were first awarded in 2004. The difference these grants have made to local community groups is invaluable and the work they carry out is vital to these communities.
'I would urge every voluntary group in Dublin to take the time to fill in the application form and apply for a Dublin Bus Community Spirit Award.'
The closing date for applications is June 20. Successful applicants will be notified by Dublin Bus from August 2014 onwards.
