Support East Belfast Mission

Fundraise with us

Keep it simple and hold a 'coffee & catch up' or go all out and get your whole community involved! Why not get your church, workplace, school or club in on the act by holding a dress up day, big breakfast, quiz or sports competition. It’s all up to you! You can fundraise for EBM in general, or if a particular project is close to your heart, that’s great too. We will be here to help every step of the way and make it as successful as possible.

For more ideas, support and advice get in touch with or contact us.

Volunteer with us

Volunteers are vital to EBM, and without them we’d be lost. There are so many opportunities with us to give back, like volunteering with Restore, helping Turas with tea and coffee, serving customers in our Cafe Refresh, and so much more!

There are many benefits to volunteering, including:

  • Giving something back to the East Belfast community.
  • Gaining new skills.
  • Making new friends.
  • Learning new things about yourself and others.
  • Boosting your confidence.
