Giving back to the community

Joe Duffy Group - Supporting our front-line community Heroes

As a small gesture of our appreciation, we are going to donate €10,000 split equally between the two charities Pieta House and Alone.

Sadly, suicide affects most people in our communities and our teams. Our friends and families all know of someone who has been impacted in some way by the devastation it leaves behind. We have been a long-term and proud supporter of Pieta House.

The corona virus is also having a profound effect on our elders in our communities, who due to cocooning are unable to leave their home.Many are experiencing loneliness or feeling isolated in their community. There has never been a bigger demand on the fantastic work of the charity Alone to look after the precious and much loved over 70’s in our communities’.

Like many charitable organisations during the crisis, they have both experienced a huge increase in demand for help and at the same time due to the economic environment, have had a decline in donations. This is an incredibly challenging time for all of us, but particularly older people and for those who live alone, feel vulnerable or are suffering with mental health problems.

We want to thank Pieta House and Alone and every other great Irish Charity for playing such a crucial part in supporting those suffering the most during this crisis.
