Staff from Bannon volunteer with Alone Ireland

Staff from Bannon are excited to volunteer their day today to Alone Ireland.

The day will be spent on a variety of activities which included general maintenance work, decorating and gardening in Willie Bermingham Place, Kilmainham. This is a ALONE development which provide assisted housing to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Thank you to the very generous contributions from Bannon partners we were able to donate supplies Lynch Interact and MCR Group.

In 2018 Bannon staff volunteered for 2 days with Alone. The first day was spent carrying out cleaning, maintenance and painting to residential units which were acquired by Alone for permanent housing for older people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

On the second day, Bannon staff carried out grounds maintenance to one of Alone’s residential developments, this helped tidy up the landscape areas and provide the residents with a colourful, safe area to enjoy.  See us in action!

This year, Bannon staff are gearing up to volunteer with Alone again and are tasked with more gardening and maintenance on the 16th August.

Not only do these volunteering days give back to our local community, it reminds us of the importance of caring for our elderly and the challenges that some face in the older years.
