Offaly DAI wish to thank our tireless supporters who turned out last Saturday and helped us raise funds in support of literacy workshops for children with dyslexia. Based in St Mary’s Youth Centre, Tullamore with a current membership of just over 50 adults and children, Saturday’s turnout was poor. In spite of this we were able to get our message out, ie that there are supports for people with dyslexia in the Midlands!

We were thrilled when the final tally was announced late on Saturday night.  Despite having a much smaller army of volunteers than in 2009 (for our last flag day) when we had just 7 children, we were delighted to realised we’d raised enough cash to cover our expenses for this fundraising initiative, and to purchase essential support materials for the workshops.

As a not-for-profit organisation Offaly DAI is entirely dependent upon charitable donations, grant aid and generally the good will of our friends, families, members, etc. We would especially like to thank the people of Tullamore and its environs for their kind support. Without them our work would remain a constant uphill struggle during these cash strapped days, as we’ve said on so many occasions in the past every penny counts. So huge thanks from the committee and the members of Offaly DAI for your generous support!
