A passion for giving back

Irish Red Cross Ukraine Appeal
Chosen by The Team
In addition to the great causes listed below we wanted to help with the humanitarian crisis happening in the Ukraine and the team made a donation of 5000 euro to the Redcross Ukraine Crisis Appeal in April 2022. This wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our wonderful sponsors and those folks who purchased tickets before we announced our first speaker. Thank you all.

Aoibheann’s Pink Tie
Chosen by John
Aoibheann's Pink Tie will help and offer practical support to the families of children diagnosed with cancer and who are attending St John's Oncology Ward in Our Lady's Children's Hospital. Aoibheann’s Pink Tie “National Children’s Cancer Charity” was set up in 2010 by Mick Rochford and Jimmy Norman after the tragic loss of Jimmy’s daughter Aoibheann to cancer aged just 8 years. During Aoibheann’s year long battle with this dreadful disease, the family found little or no financial or practical support for children and their families.
Jimmy and his family had a large support network of friends and family but found that many on the ward had virtually no support at all.
When Aoibheann passed away the men wore pink ties at the funeral which was Aoibheann’s favourite colour. The charity was formed in her memory to remedy the lack of support for other children and their families going through treatment.
