Rainbow Club Cork
Tandem was delighted to support the Rainbow Club in the setup of their annual Santa Experience. This is an incredible service that brings Santa to life for autistic children that would be overwhelmed to attend a mainstream Santa experience. Their Santa’s grotto is for every child, teen, young adult & their families. The Rainbow Club aim to make their Santa visit as stress free as possible for autistic children, and to help families enjoy the experience and create memories. The Rainbow Club teaches people about Autism, how to live every day with it, and the challenges it brings to the child and family. They also provide multiple supports that are unavailable to families through normal healthcare channels.
Cork Penny Dinners Food Collection
Tandem commenced a series of lunch & learn workshops on the UN Sustainability Development Goals, the first of which was on Goal Number 1: No Poverty. Following on from that discussion, Tandem organised a food collection for Cork Penny Dinners. It was carried out over a 2-week period when we asked the team in Tandem and neighbouring business to collect non-perishable food items, baby food, clean clothing, hats, scarves and gloves. Tandem is delighted to support Cork Penny Dinners who experience a huge demand for their services over Christmas.
Christmas Quiz in aid of Charity Partners L’Arche
Tandem held its annual Christmas Quiz on the 21st December with all funds raised donated to our charity partners L’Arche Cork. The Christmas Quiz is a fun opportunity for the team to get together before breaking up for Christmas and raise some funds for our charity partners. This year we held a number of fundraisers for L’Arche and volunteered some labour in their sensory garden during the summertime. The Christmas quiz has raised over €500 for the charity. Thanks to all the team that participated in the quiz and made donations.
Tandem was delighted to collaborate with L’Arche as charity partners in 2023, supporting their goals and projects throughout the year.
