Fundraising

AdVIC would like to thank everyone for all their effort, support and their donations. Without your help we would not be able to assist as many people as we do.

Sharon Mitchel

Special thanks to Sharon Mitchel and her family for their continued support. Whether through direct donations or a fundraiser for AdVIC in memory of her beloved son Jamie, Sharon and her family have supported AdVIC for years, and we cannot express how grateful we are.  

Due to Covid  19 we have not been able to hold our usual fundraising appeals, so we would like to pay thanks to some of the major donors who have been instrumental in allowing our services to continue helping families and friends bereaved by homicide:

FNI (Fingal Network Initiative)

Gilbert Family

And to all of you that have sent in donations, we would like to extend a huge thank you for your support.
Every little bit helps those in need.

We would also like to mention S.O.S who have very generously offered free wellness webinars to all our members.  These webinars are crucial to helping us get through these very trying times, not only our bereavements but with the pandemic this year.  S.O.S have been a wonderful support to AdVIC in the last couple of years.
