Iceland Ireland Partner Story
Our Charity partnership with Iceland Ireland has gone from strength to strength since its beginning in 2017.
In 2019 Iceland really wanted to focus on giving back to the local community and they came to us with the wonderful idea of gifting some Easter eggs from their stores to our Day Care centers in their locality. This kind gesture was a delightful way for Iceland Managers and staff members to meet our ASI staff and people with dementia who use our services.
Iceland Douglas area manager Stephen Mulvey and store representatives from Douglas Cork, presented Easter eggs to our staff and people with dementia at our Bessboro Day Care Centre in Blackrock, Cork during the week leading up the Easter weekend.
The wonderful donation was greeted with open arms and wide smiles!
The Alzheimer Society of Ireland CEO Pat McLoughlin said: “We are delighted that our corporate partner Iceland Foods Ireland have decided to take part in this exciting initiative to visit three of our day care centers across the country and gift Easter eggs to people with dementia and our hard-working staff members.”
Visits to our Day Care centers in Dublin, Failte Day Care and Merlin Park Centre in Galway also took place and our clients and staff we’re so delighted to meet with the Iceland teams in their locality and to receive the gifted Easter Eggs.
Also for 2020, Iceland Ireland became our main sponsor of our very first Alzheimer’s Memory Walk virtual campaign.
‘’Iceland have a long standing partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Ireland. Over the last number of years, we have had first-hand experience of the tremendous work carried out by the ASI and know the importance of events such as Tea Day in order to raise much needed funds for dementia services across Ireland’’
Ron Metcalfe, Managing Director of Iceland Ireland
The staff at Iceland Ireland get involved in a huge variety of fundraising throughout the year to support our work.
Thank you Iceland for all the dedication and genersoity!
