On Saturday 14th September 2013 the Harvey Nash Ireland team, joined by colleagues from our Nordic offices and our CEO Albert Ellis, cycled 100km from Dublin to Kilkenny on a gloriously sunny day.
All our efforts throughout the year were focused on this one charity and we raised money and awareness by holding several events including a table quiz, a bake sale, and sponsored casual Fridays in the office.
The Jack & Jill Children's Foundation is an organisation that provides direct funding to families of children with brain damage, and also to those who suffer severe intellectual and physical developmental delay. The charity enables families to purchase home respite care. These are children who, as a result of their condition, require intensive home nursing. The Foundation gives these families the Gift of Time; time to do the things that we so often take for granted like shopping, taking their other children to the park, a night's sleep and many more.
In the end we raised a massive €10,301.37
for the charity. For any more information about the great work they continue to do, please visit the charity here
