Support community groups
We have supported a number of health and wellbeing initiatives in the past such as the Community First Responders in Newbridge, Navan and Kildare town by supplying defibrillators. Local CFR groups are often the first on the scene at incidents providing emergency medical care until the arrival of the ambulance service.
In support of the most vulnerable in our society, we are annual sponsors of the Dragons at the Dock regatta event to raise funds for the Simon Community as well as other local causes. In 2021, teams are challenged to race virtually from Dublin to Hong Kong - home of the world's largest Dragon Boat race. To date, Dragons at the Docks has raised over €893,000, with 75% of the funds going to the Dublin Simon Community, and the balance to be distributed to local charities in the Grand Canal Dock area.
As well as taking pride in restoring listed features, hedgerows and stone walls where we build, cycle paths and walkways are now a standard feature in many of our developments for residents and their families to enjoy.
Aid mental health initiatives
We raise awareness around mental health; internally, by training employees as Mental Health First Aiders to help and support those across the business during a time of need as well as externally in the local community by fundraising for worthwhile causes such as Pieta House.
Glenveagh’s support of our local First Responders group during the pandemic has been very welcome and it’s great to see a new homebuilder in the area supporting such a vital service in the community.
