Happy Irish Month from The Ireland Funds Australia

Who can believe that we are almost at the end of March 2021, and what a 12 months it has been!

March 2020 saw our friends at The Lansdowne Club hold virtually the last in-person event in Sydney before lockdown began last year. I am happy to say that March 2021 saw The Lansdowne Club successfully host their St Patrick's Day Luncheon once more at the ICC, welcoming more than 1100 guests, with everyone so pleased to be able to be out amongst others, networking and enjoying themselves.

On behalf of Chairman Yvonne Le Bas and the Board of The Ireland Funds I want to congratulate The Lansdowne Club on such a wonderful event. I also want to thank the Club for inviting Yvonne to speak, enabling us to showcase the work of Fund and to inform members that, as a registered charity, they can make tax-deductible donations to projects in Ireland and Australia via us.

We need your help!

Throughout 2020 we were not able to hold any in-person events, the main way we generate funds to help our projects. 
In 2021, we remain committed to helping these projects and getting back to face-to-face events. Throughout the year we usually have 3 major fundraising events, and our Live and Silent Auctions are a big contributor to the success of these events.
We are looking for items like accommodation, artwork, interesting money-can't-buy items to offer at these events.

If you can donate an item or service to us, we would love to hear from you. Contact me via email for more information.

We've been let out again!

So come and join us for an afternoon filled with friends we’ve missed, entertainment, a delicious three course luncheon, beverages, and of course, Irish coffees. Let’s have some fun whilst giving back.
