What are Ice Cream Fundays?

The iconic fundraiser invites people to host ice cream parties in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland.

The beloved fundraising event, which raised vital funds to support people with Down syndrome for 20 years, took a break in 2021, but returns in an expanded format for 2024.

When is the fundraiser taking place?

Taking place across June 17-23, schools, families, neighbours and friend groups are invited to host a party in their school, their home, the park, or anywhere they like, to have fun, enjoy ice cream and donate to Down Syndrome Ireland. 

Of course, if this date doesn’t suit, you can host your ice cream party anytime.

Will you provide vouchers for free ice cream?

Sadly we cannot offer vouchers this year. You can purchase any ice cream from any store close to you for your ice cream party. We welcome you to get creative with any additional treats and toppings! While this year’s event is unsponsored, we hope to have a sponsor (and vouchers) on board again in 2025 – stay tuned.


Thank you for taking part in Ice Cream Fundays for Down Syndrome Ireland
