Team Irwin M&E Limited brighten things up at MindWise
As part of our on-going community support events we recently took part in Business in the Community’s ‘Give and Gain Day’ on 22nd June 2012.
Our selected local charity Mindwise is a leading national mental health charity which helps those affected by severe mental illness to obtain a better quality of life. Mindwise help over 48,000 people every year through services, support groups and by providing information on mental health problems.
We put together a group of willing volunteers that swapped their usual Friday work routine to take part in the general maintenance and painting works to the backyard of the Portadown centre. Not only did the Charity ‘Gain’ from our help, we also had time to spend together outside work to take part in the volunteering experience and to give back to our local community.
Marie Ferris from MindWise remarked:
“Volunteers are invaluable to our organisation and we wouldn’t be able to meet the needs of local people without their time and dedication. We’re delighted that the team from Irwin M&E Limited used Give & Gain Day 2012 to volunteer with us. They certainly worked hard, but had lots of fun as well!”
We will continue our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility and helping local communities through charity work to improve our impact on our local community.
