We are delighted to announce our chosen charities for 2015. Croi, Console and the National Breast Cancer Research Institute [NBCRI] have been selected by our General Manager Triona Gannon.
Through the partnership with the hotel, the three chosen charities will work closely with our team at the g to help raise much needed funds for the organisations in Galway, while also helping to build awareness and support. This will be achieved through various fundraising events, direct sponsorship opportunities and promotional activities, to name but a few.
Speaking of the charity association, Triona Gannon said“The g hotel is truly delighted to be working with these local hard working charities that provide such necessary work in our local and wider community. We all know someone that has been affected by either a heart condition, breast cancer and/ or the need for support when going through a difficult time in your life. Now more than ever we need to be aware of the needs of our community and do what we can do help out. Here at the g we have observed the inspiring work performed by each organisation and we are so proud to be associated with them. We look forward to building our relationships and commitment to Croi, Console, and the NBCRI in the year ahead”.
Croí has been to the fore in the fight
against Heart Disease & Stroke in the west of Ireland since 1985. In the past 30 years, the Foundation has worked tirelessly, and financed its work through an active fundraising programme, all with the aim of reducing the impact of heart disease and stroke on families in the west.
Console was established in 2002 by Paul Kelly after he had experienced the grief of losing a loved one by Suicide. Through his loss, Paul recognised a need for a dedicated Suicide Prevention, Intervention and Postvention Service here in Ireland. Since then Console has developed into a National Organisation supporting people in Suicidal Crisis and those Bereaved by Suicide through Professional Counselling, Support and Helpline Services. Console is a National Service with Centre’s in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Kerry, Athlone, Wexford, Mayo and Kildare. Console is also located in London, United Kingdom.
