OUR Committee




Role: CO-CHairperson

I've loved being part of the Buncrana Children's Charity committee since 2018.

I am a busy mum of four little ones but I love planning events, DIY and crafting.

I use these within the charity, by coming up with new fundraising ideas, social media activities and general fun ideas for the little ones.

Amanda nelson

Role: P.R.O

I joined Buncrana’s Children’a Charity in 2021 as Marketing Officer to help with advertising and promotions and have recently taken on the role of PRO.

Having worked within the Marketing industry previously, I hope to bring some of my knowledge from this on board to benefit the charity. BCC is a fantastic charity to be involved with - helping the children of Inishowen in anyway we can, when they need it most!


Role: vice p.r.o.

Hi everyone! My name is Catherine O’Donnell. 

I’m so excited and ready to stand as committee member for BCC. 

Over there years I’ve had the privilege of supporting Inishowen families in their own home around their own child’s development and supporting the parenting capacity. 

In my role as Family Support Worker I have gained an extensive and intensive understanding, experience and skill set to work with families experiencing challenges from a compassionate and strength based approach.

In my experience I believe community support is a deliberate and active intention to support you and your family when the need arises. 

My first experience of community alliance was during my role as a volunteer Listening Ear support worker for Inishowen women and their families through a local domestic violence service. 

This role led me towards family and community support. 

I learnt and experienced the power of good people coming together to offer their time and skills to support others with a gentle helping hand.

There has been times in my own life where I was faced with challenges and sought the support needed and now that I am in a position to help others I will in a way that I can and have done. 

I am genuinely excited to begin this wonderful journey with BCC, I hope to bring my creativity, fun, kindness, ongoing learning around  healing energies and female empowerment coaching and my enthusiasm for happy and thriving families. 

BCC is here for you xx
