2023-2025 St Agnes’ CCMA and Greyhound Recycling

In 2023 Greyhound Recycling announced a charity partnership with St Agnes’ Community Centre for Music and the Arts (CCMA)

The St. Agnes’ CCMA is a centre of excellence for the promotion of cultural equality, inclusivity and wellbeing. The purpose of St Agnes’ is to create, maintain and develop positive opportunities and experiences for the enhancement and enrichment of the lives of all members of the local community through music and the arts.

Together, Greyhound Recycling and St Agnes’ designed and launched a music programme for children with additional needs. This programme is supported by Greyhound Recycling and called Sensory Stars Club. It will provide much needed music therapy to children aged 4 – 16. The service will also be free of charge.

Greyhound are supporting CCMA for 2024.

The CCMA has been working with communities in Dublin for over 10 years now. Its programmes have embedded in the community in Crumlin, Dublin.

In launching this parnetship Hilda Milner from the CCMA commented, “This programme is available to children in Crumlin, Scoil Eoin, D12 Autism, and our surrounding communities.”

“At our core, we believe that inclusion is key to the success of our society and in partnership with Greyhound Recycling, we will open a world of music and instrumental activities to children in our community, especially those with sensory and/or additional needs.”

More information on our partnership is available here.
