Reel deal for charities as videos go online in fight for valuable prize

Hundreds of charities around the country are expected to connect with volunteers and supporters through digital storytelling.

A national campaign was launched to showcase the work of organisations, clubs and associations who will share inspiring videos about their work online.

The public can view videos and connect with charities on www.bettertogether.ie and support a cause in their area by volunteering their time or donating vital funds. The top three videos will also receive f3,000 for their charity.

Deirdre Garvey, of The Wheel, an umbrella body for more than 800 community and voluntary groups nationwide, said: "Voluntary groups build the networks and relationships that contribute significantly to Ireland's economy and quality of life."

The public is invited to visit the website to view the "video stories", and show their support by volunteering or donating.

The campaign was launched by model Sarah McGovern, National Spring Clean Ambassador, with Ian Dempsey, from Today FM.
