The Greater Chernobyl Cause


The Greater Chernobyl Cause

 For over 20 years Lee Valley Ireland has made annual donations to The Greater Chernobyl Cause. We donate: jackets, warm flannel pajamas, shirts, and Aran knits. Our donations have been worn by the impoverished in Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan

The Greater Chernobyl Cause has held successful Chernobyl Christmas Craft Fairs for many years, whereby people throughout the country donate pieces of their work, including: pottery, jewellery, preserves, wollens, and furniture. Lee Valley Ireland has donated our premium Irish Country Clothing to this fair for many years. Due to the donations of individuals throughout Ireland, The Greater Chernobyl Cause raises funds for this very important cause.

The charity’s head Fiona Corcoran, was deeply moved when the world's worst nuclear disaster occurred at Chernobyl in the Ukraine in 1986. The Greater Chernobyl Cause began as a response to the world's worst nuclear disaster but has now widened its mission to concentrate on the human casualties of the break-up of the former Soviet Union.

We are very proud of our partnership with the Greater Chernobyl Cause foundation.

To get involved: visit the Greater Chernobyl Cause Christmas pop-up-shop on the second floor of Merchant’s Quay Shopping Centre Cork. All items are on sale at very reasonable prices, so buy all your Christmas gifts under one roof for a very worthy cause.

The Greater Chernobyl Cause is holding a Christmas Day Swim at Myrtleville, County Cork at 10.30am. Gather family and friends, have some fun, fundraise and make donations.

Join in on an International Women’s Day Luncheon at Bunnyconnelan Myrtleville Co Cork on March 8th, 2018.

 100% of your donations go to those in need in in Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan, supporting new and refurbished orphanages and hospices, vital domestic appliances and medical equipment, shelter for vulnerable street children and for some, even the possibility of adoption.

Happy Holidays to all.
