Advocate Newspaper

The Sunshine’s main fundraising activity is the distribution of the Advocate newspaper.

The Advocate Newspaper is available across the Dublin Diocese on Palm Sunday every year, when hundreds of volunteers help to distribute the paper and to collect donations all weekend long.

Since 1997, the staff of the Sunday World newspaper have donated their time, energy and enthusiasm to produce the Advocate newspaper. The Sunday World provides the design, publishing and printing of the paper free of charge and staff work on a voluntary basis.

Their dedication, and that of our volunteers, allows the Sunshine Fund to continue providing holidays.

From the Sunshine Fund team – a very special thank you!


Stop the Presses!

As a result of the economic downturn, the amount raised through donations on the Advocate weekend has dropped significantly. Please consider helping us to close this deficit by donating now.
