How You Can Help

Want some FUN then join our Team!

As you can imagine an event like BMD takes a lot of organisation and a lot of manpower!! Without volunteers we just couldn't do it, however it is great FUN, a chance to meet new people and be surrounded by thousands of amazing dresses!! 

There are a number of ways you can help out so please call us on 01 6618000 or email aileen@downsyndromecentre.ie if you think you can lend support in any of the following ways:

“Pinny Ladies”

On the day we need a great deal of support, and this is when we call upon volunteers to become “Pinny Ladies”. With so many dresses on sale we need help in areas of changing rooms, sorting and labelling, cash and wrapping and general support throughout the day and also the days leading up to the event.

Dress Donations

Girls Night In...

This year we are looking for ladies to organise a “Girls nights in” or “coffee” morning where you invite friends, neighbours or colleagues etc to get together in your home or office and ask them to bring along a dress, then give us a call and we will collect them. Simple and fun, then just invite them along to the event on 26th May where they will be bedazzled with the array of dresses on offer.

Local Businesses, Corporates & Golf Clubs...

Do you have a contact or connection with any large business, corporate, Golf Club, or sports club that you could approach and ask to organise an internal collection of dress donations amongst staff. We will provide posters and collection bags that can be placed in any premises. Perhaps you could also agree to do the pick up when the bag is full. 

Drivers

If you have transport and would be willing to help in picking up dresses at the various drop off/collection points around your area we would love to hear from you. We will also need drivers on the day of the event so if you have a few hours to spare please let us know which area/county you are in.
