The Féile Volunteer Investment Project (VIP) is based in the Gasyard Centre and was set up in September 2006 to engage residents to take part in events and activities in their local communities of Bogside, Brandywell, Bishop’s Street, The Fountain and Creggan.

Every year, the Féile benefits from the help and support of the volunteers from these communities, without which the Féile would not be possible.


On Sunday 27th November, volunteers from the Féile and VIP took part in the Parents of Ward’s 6 & 16 Christmas event in the Everglades hotel, Derry. This was a beautiful event for Families who have children with life-long or life-limiting medical conditions and are regulars on the Children’s Wards in Altnagelvin Hospital, as well as the team from the Wards and their families.

We are immensely proud of our volunteers for giving their time to take part in a wonderful event that will have meant the world to the children, parents and staff in the wards.


Our fantastic volunteers from Volunteer Investment Project took part in this year’s Derry Halloween parade! Take a look at this wee video of them getting ready on the night! (The finest Jellyfish you’ll ever see! 🤗)
