Initially, funded by Marie Duffy and Mike Pask, Marie’s husband, since 2011, the Foundation made over £30,000 in awards. From 2017 onwards, for the continuing success and development of the Foundation we need to expand our activities, concentrating on two main areas:
to geographically extend our fun raising activities and
to increase the range and scope of our grant and awards
To enable us to achieve this, we are actively recruiting additional members/volunteers to work with us to develop and implement a realistic programme of fundraising activities and events. If you have a passion for Irish Dance, Music and Culture, and would like to help us raise funds or support us by giving your time to the Foundation please contact Mike Pask at Mike@marie-duffy-foundation.com. We would be delighted to hear from you.
