Do your bit for charity… by going on a shopping spree!


If you were looking for an excuse to hit the shops next weekend, we have found just the thing.

Dumdrum Town Centre launched their Shop for Good initiative earlier this week, a three day charity event running in the centre from Friday 24th – Saturday 26th April in association with Console.

To take part, all you have to do is purchase a €1 Shop for Good coupon from one of the many pop-up kiosks in the centre across the three days. The coupon can then be used to avail of some seriously tempting discounts in shops all over the centre.

A full list of stores and restaurants participating can be found at the kiosks or on

The best part? All the money raised from the sale of the coupons will go directly to Console, a nationwide professional suicide prevention and bereavement charity.

The Shop for Good initiative was launched last year for the first time with resounding success, and this year model Nadia Forde, Fair City actor George McMahon, TV presenter Miriam O'Callaghan and boyband Hometown were all on hand to help kick things off, along with Console CEO and founder Paul Kelly.

"This exciting fundraising effort will raise much-needed funds to help Console in our efforts to reduce the high levels of suicide in Ireland and to continue providing counselling and support for people in crisis on our 24 hour helplines," said Paul.

A shopping spree for a good cause? Count us in.
