DIT Societies Christmas Appeal 2017

Posted: 24 November, 2017

Every year the DIT Societies with the support of the DIT Societies office run a Christmas appeal in support of three charities.

Together we can make a difference this Christmas

This year students have chosen to support Saint Vincent de Paul, Jigsaw and the Irish Underwater Search and Recovery Unit. The appeal got underway on 20 November and will run until 6 December so there is still plenty of time to get involved:

Contribute a gift to the Giving-Tree campaign

You have an opportunity to help parents feel less stretched over Christmas by providing a gift for their child to open on Christmas day. Six DIT locations have an SVP Giving-tree with instructions on how to make a food or gift donation. Get together with friends, select a tag from the tree and buy a gift or a voucher suitable for the age or gender on the tag.  

  • Aungier Street - The Foyer
  • Kevin Street - The Annex
  • Bolton Street - The Stage
  • Cathal Brugha Street - Malborough Street Entrance
  • Grangegorman - Rathdown House
  • and Rathmines HQ Reception

Get involved with the many Society events happening across campus

Each student Society is hosting an event in support of the Christmas appeal. The events are as varied as the Societies themselves and represent the many different interests and activities the students are involved in. Keep an eye out for these events and please support them when you can – all proceeds from these events go to the DIT Christmas appeal!

Buy a raffle ticket to support the appeal

Students and staff will be selling raffle tickets in support of the appeal. Tickets also available from the DIT Societies Office. Please buy a raffle ticket and support our effort. You could win some fantastic prizes and you're contributing to the impact we are making together.
