The group began in 2012 when the Centre was planning to host a Suicide remembrance evening. A group of local women offered to support the running of the event and the Community Ambassadors group evolved from this. The Community Ambassadors have been active ever since organising events; participating in community training like SAFE talk and Complimentary Therapy Workshops and creating awareness around domestic violence through 16 Days of Action Against Violence Against Women. In the last year they supported the Knockalisheen Women’s Group International Food Day. The Ambassadors were also integral to our Voting Drive for the referendum and helped with the decoration of the centre for Santa’s Grotto at Christmas. They volunteer every year at our Harvest Fair and Thomond Park Senior Citizens Christmas Party.
