We’re a small team with a big impact!

Cycling is a great way to combine fundraising, fitness and fun. This September Niall will lead IYF’s cycling team from Paris to Nice for the third year in a row.

Sabina Cotter - Head of Grants and Programmes

Sabina helps the fantastic companies, individuals, schools, volunteers and IYF board to raise as much funds as we can for kids in Ireland who need our help. Working closely with youth and community workers who support these children everyday she ensures that all funds go directly to those who need them. Sabina joined the IYF in September 2008 with a degree in Marketing & Management and 5 years experience working on national and international marketing campaigns. Her most fun day in the last 5 years with the IYF was being cycled around Dublin in the St Patrick's Day parade in a messenger bike basket (with a broken leg)!
