A mesage from our Charity partner – Eating Disorder Centre Cork
“In 2007 a group of concerned parents whose children were suffering with an ED got together for mutual support and direction. At the time there was no other support or dedicated treatment outside of the Dublin area. They got together and their goal at the time was to endure that a service would be set up in Cork and be extended to all people regardless of their socio-economic background. Since then the Centre has grown and last year there was an average of 188 clients seen by therapists every month ranging in age from 11 years old to people in their 60’s with approximately 50% receiving a low-cost rate. Most of these clients were students aged between 18 and 30 years. As some of you may know, counselling can be costly but when dealing with an Eating Disorder which is a specialised area of work a person is required to attend weekly counselling sessions and also attend a dietitian who specializes in Eating Disorders…and their doctor. So, this is where you all come in and we ask for your help this week. ALL proceeds that are collected from RAG week will go directly to these two areas of treatment…. the low-cost counselling and the dietitian services. It will help to ease the pressure for clients who may already be under huge strain from this debilitating condition. A huge thank you to the Students’ Union for putting us forward as their chosen charity this year, it is very much appreciated.
We have amazing posters around the place, that were done by MTU Crawford Art College a few years back.

Ask the hypnotist if he could hypnotise you all, so that every time you see the EDCC QR code at the different events throughout the week, that you’ll be compelled to donate a euro or two ?”
