Best Buddies Ball
Please note, the Best Buddies Ball is open to all students from NUIG who volunteer with Ability West - not just those who are involved directly in the Best Buddies Programme.
If you have a buddy and are unable to attend, please let me know as soon as possible as I need to contact your buddy's family and make arrangements so that they are not left sitting alone.
Future Plans
Please carefully and honestly assess your availability to commit to future participation.
