Staff Charity Fundraising
Last year, staff from all across the Connacht Hospitality Group decided to engage in their own charity fundraising. Staff wanted to develop a culture surrounding charity fund-raising, creating awareness, raising funds and developing working relationships with local charities.
A vote took place in January 2017 for charities close to our team members hearts. Staff organised events throughout the year and by December 2017 the team had raised €4500 which was divided evenly between the 3 charities of 2017; Pieta House, Join Our Boys and The Alzheimer Society of Ireland. The team organised all types of fundraising events from Bingo, Charity walk, Tables Quiz’s, Raffles to Hell & Back.
After an amazing year of fund-raising amongst our staff on their own initiative, this year the team rolled out the campaign again and employee fundraising efforts are up on €5242 with our Christmas events still to come. We look forward to inviting our 2018 charities in to The Connacht Hotel in the New Year to receive their cheques. In 2018 the team voted for Hand-in-Hand, Voices for Down Syndrome and our neighbours Galway Hospice.
