Making a positive impact

Many of our teams see helping the local community as part of their day job and take part in giving and volunteering programs. In the last year, through the generosity of 549 colleagues, charities received €96,291 in giving and fundraising and 5,296 hours of volunteering

We donated almost €200,000 in financial assistance to charities, including blood transportation charity BloodBikes and charities for those experiencing homelessness and mental distress in Ireland during the COVID-19 pandemic: Alone and Pieta House.
