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.
VOLUNTEERS AT FÉILE 2023
Féile and Volunteer Investment Project were delighted with the response and enthusiasm from our Volunteers once again. Each year the Féile greatly benefits from the time and dedication given by our local volunteers who contribute so much to the events that take place in the festival!
A CALL OUT FOR VOLUNTEERS
It’s that time of year again! The Gasyard Wall Féile will take place this year from 12th – 19th August. The Féile would not take place without the volunteers who make all these events happen.
This is a call out for volunteers to help with events such as family, health & wellbeing, older people, music, film, discussions & debates.

PARENTS OF WARD’S 6 & 16 CHRISTMAS EVENT
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.
