Fiona and Mary are recipients of the Volunteer Ireland Volunteer Manager award, 2020 Fiona and Mary manage Truagh Development Association’s rural social enterprise, the Community Services Programme (CSP) based at the Blackwater Valley Lifelong Learning, Cultural, ICT and Peace Centre in a rural border area in north County Monaghan. Fiona and Mary completely changed the focus of the CSP in a very short time frame, between 13-17th March, when the Blackwater Centre closed and all services had to cease. It wasn’t easy for them and they were scared like the rest of the country but they set about ensuring the safety of the CSP staff and recruiting a huge team of volunteer drivers in order to deliver thousands of freshly prepared meals and care packages to older and vulnerable cocooners in north Monaghan. Prior to the lockdown in March 2020, the CSP delivered around 40 meals per week to older people in the community as well as all their other services. Since 18th March the CSP has produced and delivered over 9,000 hot meals and delivered more than 4,500 care packages to older and vulnerable people in the community of Truagh, Emyvale, Tydavnet, Ballinode and the wider north Monaghan area. The pair supported their volunteers from recruitment through training through to empowerment and community engagement.
