The Charity Committee at The Shannon Airport Group ;

Charity Committee

Over €420,000 raised by Group staff for charity since 2014.

Each year, our staff at the Shannon Airport Group nominates and votes for two charities close to their hearts, and work hard to raise much needed funds on their behalf - over the course of that year. Our Charity Committee is made up of staff across our various commercial property, Airport and professional services departments to organise and manage fundraising events. 

This is truly a team effort, passionately driven by our staff from right across the group. We are proud of the wonderful work that goes into organising so many fun events to raise funds for our chosen charities. 
 
To date, we are proud to say that our people have raised over €420,000 for our charity partners. In years gone by, chosen charities have included Irish Cancer Society, Limerick Suicide Watch, Share a Dream and Clare Crusaders and we are committed to continue building on this.

Our Charity Committee have pledged to go above and beyond for their two chosen charities for 2023/2024. Munster based Milford Care Centre and The Alzheimer Society of Ireland will become the beneficiaries of much needed funds raised by the Group over the next 12 months.

“Across the next 12 months we will execute lots of exciting plans for everyone to get involved and show their support, from our partners across the Shannon Campus, the community here in Shannon, passengers and general public.”

Each year staff from across the organisation submit charities to be chosen for our annual fundraising initiatives. This year, Milford Care Centre and The Alzheimer Society Ireland received the most votes from staff. Like with all our charities, we are honoured to dedicate our fundraising efforts to these two vital Irish charities over the next year.

Vanessa McTigue Chairperson of The Shannon Airport Group Charity Committee

Anne Marie Hayes, Fundraising Manager with Milford Care Centre said, “We are delighted to have been chosen as one of The Shannon Airport Group staff charities for the forthcoming year. This partnership means a great deal to Milford Care Centre, as it not only highlights the recognition of our vital work, but also brings with it the invaluable support of The Shannon Airport Group’s dedicated employees. Working with The Shannon Airport Group will help raise awareness about our work and the importance of Hospice care within the local community and beyond. We are deeply grateful for this opportunity and look forward to working together as we are excited about the positive impact we can achieve.” 

Mairéad Dillon, Head of Fundraising at The Alzheimer Society of Ireland, said: "I'm delighted that The Alzheimer Society of Ireland (The ASI) will be one of Shannon Airport Group’s Staff Charities for the following year. I want to thank the Staff that chose The ASI and The Shannon Airport Group for this opportunity. Their support will allow The ASI to continue its vital work in providing care and support for people living with dementia and their families. I'd also like to congratulate the Milford Care Centre and look forward to working with them along with Shannon Airport.
