  1. The Poetry Bubble

    Poetry BubbleThe poetry bubble is a cross community written poetry platform where people from all sections of the society in the Dungannon/ Mid Ulster area can express and give voice to their experiences during the Covid lockdown.  The Poetry Bubble is open to people from all age groups, gender, ethnic and religious backgrounds. Participants in the project will be invited to submit their written work along with a short bio. Not all poems will be chosen for publication.  We intend to produce a special limited edition hard back book which will be presented to the lead communities/ Community centres/ schools/ clubs taking part. The poems will be complemented by a selection of photographs taken by our events photographer  reflecting the societal effects/ changes resulting from lockdown and the effect it has had on our communities. This project will be a unique written and photographic social record of all communities living within Dungannon during lockdown 2021

    During July 2021 Eugene Hamill will attempt to cycle 2021k to raise funds for ‘Sporting Hearts’ the children’s charity he founded back in 2004 after witnessing first hand the effect the Balkan wars had on children and the elderly in the former Yugoslavia.  The cycle will start and finish in the Serbian Capital Belgrade and will visit some of  Serbia’s natural treasures, historic cities and enchanted castles.  There is no fixed route or times, just miles and miles of open road and the rise and fall of the summer sun to measures the passing days. If you would like to give Eugene your support you can do so by clicking the donate button below, or you can join the cycle challenge yourself. All you have to do is start you own ‘Sporting Hearts’ fundraising page at Virgin Money Giving.Com , hop on a bike and do your best to cycle 2021k wherever you are during the month of July 2021.
