New Year, New Budget!

01 Jan2019

Let Dubco help you take the stress out of budgeting!

The Budget Account allows you to spread the cost of your bills over a year, ensuring you will have enough money for the things you need and for the things you want. It also:

  • Helps you organise your spending and savings
  • Takes the stress out of paying bills

Here’s an example of how the Budget Account can help spread the cost of your bills.

Annual bills:

Electricity –  €1,800.00
Gas –  €960.00
Club Membership – €1,440.00
Car Insurance – €500.00
Total bills for 2019 – €4,700.00
Total weekly payment €90.38

If there isn’t enough money in the Budget Account to cover all your bills an overdraft* facility may be available. The overdraft must clear to zero on a regular basis.

 

For further information, contact:

Members, we need your help!

Help us raise €4,000 to send a truck to Belarus for our Burren Chernobyl Project Truck Run 2018

We want to fill and send a Humanitarian Aid Truck to Belarus to support orphanages, adult asylums, and day centres across Belarus and we need your help in doing it!

The Burren Chernobyl Project (BCP) was established in 1993 to help with the child victims of the fallout from the Chernobyl reactor explosion in 1986. They have worked tirelessly for the past 25 years to help improve the lives of these affected children and families.

This charity is very close to the staff in Dubco, with several staff members previously travelling to Belarus to spend time in these orphanages. Our Member Communications Officer Dean Ladrigan is recently back from his trip in October.

How you can help us (donate cash or clothes etc)

If you would like to donate towards the cost of sending this truck to Belarus, you can make a donation over the phone at 018870400 or at the counter in the Dubco office. The account is called The Dubco Helping Hand Project. You can also lodge funds online with the following details;

BIC: DUCUIE21XXX

iBAN: IE57DUCU99101010699580

We will be accepting items from members in the Dubco office on Friday 23rd November between 4pm and 7pm & Saturday 24th November between 10am and 2pm that will be sent on a truck to Belarus. The items that we are looking for members to donate include:
• Clothes for all ages
• Bed clothes
• Walking aids
• Wheelchairs
• Nappies (big and small, not pull ups)

Thank you for your support in this great cause! Make sure to keep an eye on our Social Media pages and our website for updates on our progress.
