CDYS Midleton ‘Electrofast’ fundraiser for My Place

Young people from CDYS, along with staff and volunteers, held a 12hr ‘Electrofast’ last Thursday. Everyone spent 12hrs together with no access to phones, tablets, laptops, electronic music or gaming devices. It was a sponsored event with all funds raised going to the ‘My Place’ project. 

The day began at 11am at the CDYS office on Churchlane, with a day trip to Fota Wildlife Park and then back to the office for a pizza dinner. The rest of the evening was spent playing board games, group activities and our young musicians brought along their acoustic guitars for a sing song.

Well done to everyone who participated and good luck catching up on all those voicemails and texts! Although I heard one girl say she didn’t even want her phone back! Maybe we should all do an electrofast every now and again…
