We are so delighted to introduce our wonderful new Christmas campaign, Light Up Cork. 

This is a special online giving page where you can make a donation and dedicate a star in the Cork night sky to someone you love. Check out our incredible Light Up Cork online giving campaign and light up your star by clicking here. 

The artwork for our Light Up Cork online page is designed by graphic designer, Amy Begley. Amy worked with us to create the unique Cork landscape, incorporating some key Cork landmarks to symbolise Cope Foundation's impact across Cork city and county. Amy is a wonderful artist, who happens to have an intellectual disability. You can find out more in our 'Meet Amy' page by clicking here. 


The unique Cork landscape includes the Shandon Bells in Cork city; the Kindred Spirits sculpture in Midleton; the Castle Gates in Macroom; Saint Colman's Cathedral in Cobh; and the Baltimore Beacon in west Cork.

Friday 3rd December is International Day of Persons with Disabilities. Why not join us in putting our Light Up Cork campaign into action by lighting up in some way and showing your support for inclusion in Cork communities. We are reaching out to schools, companies and individuals to 'light up' on this day. Dedicate your star online and perhaps wear your Christmas jumper with lights, turn on your Christmas tree lights or even pop some lights across your laptop. Take a photo or selfie and join the campaign online using #LightUpCork.    

If your company, school or group wants to #LightUpCork on Friday 3rd December, we have great fundraising packs to help you make the most of the day. Get in touch with us on 021 4643326 or email murphye2@cope-foundation.ie.
