are Midleton My Place Ltd?
is the Project going to serve?
We are a small group of 7 local citizens who came together with the sole purpose of filling a gap
in the community for the youth of our town.
Efforts had been made prior to this and some years back, research was carried out among Transition Year students in the Midleton area. The resulting report “WHERE DO YOU GO WHEN YOU GO OUT?” highlighted the need for a safe and welcoming place for young people to chill out and meet up with their peers. Following from this, SECAD commissioned
a report on the potential of a youth café project
in our area. As volunteers, we formed a limited company back in november 2012 and then
the real work began. We have secured a substantial grant towards the funding of the project through SECAD, and we also approached Midleton Town Council who purchased the site on behalf of
the Community. The Council have pledged further funding and we have secured a long-term lease on the site. Paul Horgan Design Ltd was engaged for the Planning and Tender stages. These stages have been successfully completed in recent weeks
and a contractor selected for the build. However, there is a shortfall between the cost of the construction phase and the funds raised to date. This is where YOU come in. We need to raise funds to fill the shortfall between available funds and the total cost of the project. Each household and business will be invited to make a contribution towards the project. All donations are confidential and it is up to you whether you donate and how much. Whether you give €5 or €500, it will be put to good use! We understand that we are living in very challenging times. We only ask that you give what you can.
With our sincerest thanks,
