Discover Meaningful Gifting at Our Festive Sip and Shop Event!

In the heart of Newry, within the welcoming confines of Bolster Community HQ, we’re excited to present an event that combines the joy of festive shopping with the power of social impact. Join us as we bring together a diverse group of social enterprises, all under one roof, for a memorable experience.

Why choose ordinary presents when you can opt for gifts with purpose this holiday season? We invite you, our valued community members, to explore this unique shopping opportunity and be part of something special.

At Bolster Community, we lead by example in the third sector. We believe in the power of collaboration and meaningful partnerships. While we can’t solve the world’s or Northern Ireland’s challenges alone (although knowing us, we’d give it a good go! :D). That’s why we’ve decided to shine a spotlight on our neighbours in the Mourne Newry Down District, showcasing the incredible impact they’re making on both our local community and beyond.

Collaborating with Work West, we’re excited to bring guests from Belfast to our event, who are eager to step outside the city’s hustle and bustle to discover what’s happening in our neck of the woods. A couple will also exhibit and add to our range of goods on offer. However,  before the festivities begin, this group will enjoy an exclusive tour of our facilities, where they’ll gain firsthand insights into our work, the challenges we’ve confronted, and the solutions we’ve achieved. Additionally, Work West has generously provided the delightful light nibbles for all our guests.

By hosting this event at our HQ, we aim to provide you with a glimpse behind the scenes of our work and mission. It provides an opportunity to connect with some remarkable social enterprises, such as Women’sTec, USPCA, Fringe Coffee Co, Storybox, Friends of the Arc, Head Injury Support, Acorn Candles and more!, offering an array of beautiful goods. Get ready to indulge in some retail therapy with a selection of products that not only make you feel good but also do good

Finally, you can also look forward to music from Shane McGirr, light nibbles to keep your energy up, and, of course, a few bubbles to add to the festive spirit.

We genuinely hope to see you there, as together, we embrace the spirit of giving with purpose.
