TR Southern Fasteners team raises €1,000 for homeless charity in Cork
Employees from TR Southern Fasteners in Ireland have been busy taking part in various charity activities to raise funds for local charity, Helping Hands Action Group (HHAG) in Cork. The collective amount raised was over €700, which was topped up to €1000 by TR.
HHAG works with people who are at risk of homelessness due to threat of eviction or poor quality housing, those who are currently homeless (sleeping on the streets, living in hotel rooms, couch surfing), and those who are just emerging from homelessness.
The charity’s work is based on an empowerment model of helping people to help themselves, by offering them practical tools and information.
TR Southern Fasteners employees were notified about the charity’s work and were invited to get involved in any way they wished, by taking part in a number of different activities. Some employees helped with serving dinners, teas and coffees on the streets of Cork city in the run up to Christmas and others held other individual fundraising events.
Marie Spratt at TR Southern Fasteners commented: “Every one of the team did what they could to raise money for this fantastic cause. We set out with the idea to make a little difference which could go a long way, and it was fantastic to be able to hand over the cheque for €1,000 to the team at HHAG.”
