Will you shine a light on inclusion this Christmas?

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.

Saturday 3rd December is International Day of Persons with Disabilities. 

Join us and our charity partners, Trigon Hotels on Harley Street (next to the Metropole Hotel) anytime from 10AM to 2PM to chat about inclusion and how we can embrace this more in every aspect of our lives. 

People will be encouraged to donate to our virtual giving page, 'Light Up Cork' and shine a light on inclusion. 

We all also have complimentary festive treats, a raffle and more.
