The Dublin office had a very successful partnership with its Charity of the Year for 2018,. Among the activities carried out throughout the year were an Easter Egg raffle, 8 people ran the Dublin half marathon and a house design project was completed by Shauna Sweeney, Deputy Head of Architecture.
The main project during the year was the refurbishment of one of Cheeverstown’s gardens at a property in Ballycullen. The pictures show the amazing transformation achieved by Peter Daly and the team of 16 volunteers over two days of gardening. Without their great work, it would not have been possible to complete this project.
Paula Coghlan, Recreational Co-ordinator at Cheeverstown, reflected on the tremendous impact the garden refurbishment project will have for the day-to-day lives of people at the charity, “We really appreciate all you have done, as now it means the men in the house now are able to sit out and enjoy their summer in their garden, for now they are enjoying just looking out at it. We would have had neither time, money or the help to do what you have done so the work you have achieved is very valuable to us as a centre and the people we support.
A huge thank you to all who participated. Many thanks also to everyone who donated towards the €400 raised for the plants for the garden; to Roadstone who sponsored much of the material for the project, and to the gardeners at Cheeverstown House who also gave up their time throughout the project.
Donations were made by PM Group towards the garden refurbishment project, as well as to Cheeverstown House at Christmas. In total, the Dublin office and its employees raised/donated €7,000 for Cheeverstown House throughout the year.
