Our Directors have proven experience integrating within the local community having organised and raised thousands of pounds for the Lady’s Crumlin Hospital in Ireland, Starlight Foundation in the UK and the Iris House Children’s Hospice charity in South Africa. We will continue this tradition by ensuring Emerald works with organisations within each of its local communities for fund raising as well as work sponsored programs. In Ireland we are working with organisations that include The BubbleGum which provides customised trips for seriously ill children. In 2016 we added To Children with Love whose mission “is to help transform the lives of abandoned and disadvantaged children through programmes designed to enhance their self-esteem, dignity, enabling them to feel equal to their peer group in society”. In the UK we support the Starlight Foundation which provides entertainment, education and family activities for seriously ill children. In South Africa, we work with the Iris House Children’s Hospice who are committed to enriching the quality of life for Special Needs children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. Emerald is also involved with sports activities for children within its community including sponsoring local football and hurling team events.
