CMAC is proud to work in partnership with a number of charities across Northern Ireland. We have a strong charitable ethos and as well as providing drama services we also make annual donations to a chosen charity. Here’s some of the charitable work we have undertaken recently;
O4O Cookstown Ltd is an independent registered charity covering Cookstown District, working to improve the quality of life for the over 50’s. O4O Cookstown Ltd have been working with, and providing essential support services for vulnerable older people in our community over 25 years.
CMAC is supported by O4O Cookstown Ltd in the delivery of weekly arts sessions focusing specifically on older people. It is with great pride that CMAC strives to deliver a service that brings purpose, meaning and joy to the lives of the wonderful residents in Moneymore Care Home.
KINSHIP CARE NI is a charity set up in 2010 that aims to “keep families together” by providing advice, information and support to kinship carers and their children in Northern Ireland.
Kinship Care NI supports grandparents and other family members who are raising their family and friends’ children. CMAC are privileged to deliver a fantastic weekly Drama programme at Kinship Care NI’s Magherafelt and Antrim branches.
BRAIN INJURY MATTERS is a charity dedicated to supporting people affected by Acquired Brain Injury to rebuild their lives and reach their full potential in the community.
CMAC provides a varied programme of weekly Drama sessions specifically tailored to the needs of service users at Brain Injury Matters. As with all our sessions, this service is delivered through laughter and fun to rebuild confidence and enhance communication through creativity.
THE BASE is a group situated in Magherafelt for adults with learning disabilities. It aims to maintain and develop friendships through leisure and social activities.
CMAC provides weekly drama sessions tailored to the interests of the group. The group work together to rehearse and perform show cases, engage in activities and have lots of fun through drama. This team work builds and maintains friendships and encourages creativity and confidence.
SCHOOL AID ROMANIA is an initiative whereby students from local schools visit Romania with the aim of bringing help to those in need.
CMAC are proud to have supported St Patrick’s College Maghera student and CMAC volunteer Nuala MacOscar in her fundraising efforts for a recent visit to orphanages and hospitals in Romania. We recognise that we at CMAC are very blessed and hope that our charitable donation for 2015 can bring joy to children less fortunate than our beloved CMAC kids.
MACMILLAN CANER SUPPORT is a source of comfort and support for people affected by cancer. They not only help patients, but families and communities as well.
A charity that is particularly close to our hearts here at CMAC, we hope our charitable donation for 2014 will have helped the great people at MacMillan to continue doing the incredible job they do every, single day.
