We’re good with your money, we promise you that – and we make funds stretch a long way.

To raise necessary funds to help us with our work, we build on our annual events such as The Kerdiffstown Christmas Fair, which is held on the third Sunday in November each year. We also get involved with Supermarket bag-packs and are supported by the annual SVP car raffle.

We are always looking for new and innovative ways fundraise, and the personnel to help. Ideas include coffee mornings, sponsored walks/runs, movie nights, charity of the month schemes in your workplace and many more.
If you are interested in helping out, and have a fundraising idea, please call or email the centre on (045) 866 337 or
Thank you.


Our beautiful centre dates back to the 15th Century & is set on a 30-acre estate of fine Kildare park-land just 20kms from Dublin, outside the historical town of Naas. Find our contact details & where we are located.
