COMMUNITY groups across the Northside are being urged to apply for an award which could see them receive a grant up to €5,000.

Any voluntary and community group based in an area served by Dublin Bus is eligible to apply for a grant of €1,000, €2,000 or €5,000 in this year’s Dublin Bus Community Spirit Awards (CSAs). For more information and to apply, visit www.dublinbus.ie

Application forms are available at www.dublinbus.ie and will be accepted up to 5pm on July 12. Dublin Bus will notify successful applicants from August 31.

Dublin Bus employees helped drive community spirit at the awards launch last week, showing they are truly at the heart of every community. They shared how they volunteer in their own local areas, while encouraging local voluntary and community groups across Dublin to apply for the awards.

 Last year alone the CSAs helped local sports clubs to buy much-needed defibrillators, charities to support the welfare of children in hospital, asylum seekers living in Direct Provision to establish cooking groups, and so much more. 

The awards are a celebration of Dublin communities as well as an important way to recognise the dedication of local voluntary and community groups whose hard work often goes unnoticed.

Dublin Bus chief executive Ray Coyne said: “The work these groups do is instrumental in building our communities and we cannot thank them enough. 

“I would also like to show my appreciation for the Dublin Bus employees who have shown an immense dedication to giving their time and helping those around them.”
