Angels Pin Competition 2016
IWA would like to thank all the Transition Year students who submitted designs to the Angels Pin Design Competition. The Association was overwhelmed with the positive response we received and in total over 100 designs were submitted from students across Ireland. The winners of the competition were announced at a National Awards Ceremony which took place in Athlone on Monday, 14th March 2016.
Congratulations to our five winners who will have their unique and creative designs reproduced, manufactured and sold by IWA as part of its national fundraising campaign Angels which takes place in November.
More about IWA and Angels Campaign
Angels is Irish Wheelchair Association’s national fundraising campaign which takes place each November.
Angels has grown from strength to strength since the first campaign in 2001 and this year the Association is celebrating our 15th year of the campaign. Every November, Angels products are sold nationwide for just €2 each, enabling IWA to generate vital funds to continue to maintain the level of vital services the Association provides to people with disabilities in their own homes and communities.
The Angels Pin collection has over 70 different designs which are sold by IWA volunteers and supporters to enable IWA to continue to make a real difference to the lives of our 20,000 members. Many IWA supporters have the complete suite and look forward to adding to their collection each November.
