Camino De Quarantine
During the month of April, Team Tandem took on the Focus Ireland Camino De Quarantine challenge. Participants walked a minimum of 114km in aid of Focus Ireland. The distance is that of the last stage of the French Camino from the town of Sarria to Santiago de Compostela. Tandem raised €1,000 for Focus Ireland with this event.
Focus Ireland replicates the real Camino experience, recognising each stage of your walk by virtually “stamping” your online Camino passport. If you are interested in participating, the Camino De Quarantine is an ongoing fundraising event for Focus Ireland, you can sign up for it here: Camino De Quarantine
Make-A-Wish Virtual Race Night
In June Tandem held a virtual race night in aid of Make-A-Wish. Participants enjoyed an evening at the races, with simulated gambling only the evening was focused on fun and fundraising. Employees were joined by friends and family, adults and children, creating a welcome atmosphere. There were spot prizes for best dressed, best background and overall winner on the night. We raised €500 from the evening which will help to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Tandem is delighted to announce its charity partners for 2021.
We look forward to an exciting Corporate Social Responsibility programme for 2021 and to some fun filled activities and fundraising with these three great charities:
A wish granted is true magic for children with life-threatening medical conditions, providing respite from their normal routines of hospitals, doctors and treatment. Make-A-Wish does not receive any government funding, and relies overwhelmingly on the kindness of the Irish public to continue granting wishes.
Homelessness is still very prevalent in our society and Tandem would like to continue to support Focus Ireland this year.
The Rainbow Club Cork, Centre for Autism
The Rainbow Club Cork Centre for Autism is a professional autism service provider. Supported by over 60 volunteers, their mission is to provide skills, support and a community hub for children and young people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families.
To celebrate Wish Week Tandem raised €600 with a ‘guess the number of sweets in the jar’ competition. Make-A-Wish Ireland raised over €40,000 during Wish Week to continue their work of granting wishes to seriously ill children. For Easter Tandem has fundraised to donate 250+ Easter Eggs to Focus Ireland and The Rainbow Club Centre for Autism. Tandem would like to thank everyone who have supported its fundraisers.
