Tandem’s CSR team and volunteers have been busy so far this year and participated in the Focus Ireland Big Busk, Daffodil Day in aid of the Irish Cancer Society and Darkness into Light in aid of Pieta House.
The Focus Ireland Big Busk took place on 10th of March 2023. Nationwide, buskers, choirs, barbershop quartets and bands volunteered their time to entertain commuters and passers by as well as encouraging them to donate. Tandem’s volunteers joined in throughout the day to collect money at Kent Station Cork. We helped to raise €4,000 in Kent Station and over €346,000was raised nationally for the charity.
The 24th of March was Daffodil Day in aid of the Irish Cancer Society. Tandem held a cake sale over two days and raised €370.00 for the Irish Cancer Society.
On the 6th of May, Tandem staff participated in Darkness into Light, raising over €900.00 for Pieta House. In various locations nationwide, our colleagues got up at 3:30am to commence their walk shortly after, starting to walk before dawn and finishing up at sunrise.
Tandem’s charity partners for 2023 are Focus Ireland and L’Arche Ireland. We look forward to some volunteering opportunities with both these charities in the very near future.
