Saturday Fun Club
The club first started as a pilot scheme in Clonshaugh in 2011 by Andrea Fox (National Youth Officer) and two volunteers. At the start there were a total of four members and this
was certainly to grow in time. After a few months Andrea moved the club to the National Resource Centre in Clondalkin. Since the Saturday Fun Club was first started it has grown in the number of children with Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus taking part, the number of volunteers helping out and in location, a new club has started in the Louth/Meath region
Aim of the Club
The aim of the club is to concentrate on developing the participants existing skills and learning new skills through fun based activities such as art and crafts, cookery, computers, sports and social outings. All of these activities help in some way to improve and develop skills such as hand and eye co-ordination, and self-confidence.
The club also provides parents with the chance to meet over a cup of tea and chat about their experiences. If you are interested in volunteering please go the the Volunteering section of this website.
The Saturday Fun Club takes place in the National Resource Centre in Clondalkin, where it runs every 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from 11.30am to 1.30pm. It is open to all members aged 4-12 years who have Spina Bifida and/or Hydrocephalus. Siblings are also invited to take part in activities.
