Dundrum Arch Club
Volunters needed!! Dundrum Arch Club is a social club for people with an intellectual disability run on a voluntary basis. We are looking for volunteers for 2 hours every Wednesday evening to help in our club. We have an array of activities - bingo, arts & crafts, computers, sports and of course our weekly disco. We also have an annual weekend away and for the past 2 years we have gone to Barrettstown and had a fantastic time.

The sports room is also a lot of fun but the competition is high! Our club has over 90 members, each with their own favourite thing to do each Wednesday night. You'll see some of the guys on the dance floor for 2 hours.. some playing tabletennis ... and others just happy to people watch. This club maybe some of the members only social outing per week so it's important we help make it a good night for them. As volunteers, we have so much fun and get so much out of the club.
