Why take part?

St Patrick’s Day is a day when Irish people all over the world come together to celebrate our heritage. 


However, not everyone is able to share in the excitement of St Patrick’s Day celebrations in the same way. Many Irish people across the North of England struggle daily with the cost of living crisis, poor physical or mental health, social anxiety or isolation. Such struggles mean they often miss out on these wonderful days of joy and connection.  


Fréa works across the North of England delivering lifeline services to Irish people in need. Donations raised through Fréa’s Big Irish Breakfast will go directly to support our most vulnerable community members. 


How will money be raised?

We’re asking you to join with Fréa’s Big Irish Breakfast at home, at work or in a community group and to make a donation to Fréa.  


If you’re hosting guests, encourage them to donate what they feel, what they’re able or the equivalent cost of a café breakfast. 


Your donation changes lives.
