€2,000 raised for Irish Cancer Society

At a special presentation ceremony on Friday, 23rd September, Barry Group management and staff presented Marion Guiney and Sheila Sheahan of the Irish Cancer Society, Mallow branch with a cheque for €2,000 following a unique fundraiser held at Barry Group headquarters in Quartertown. The money was raised when management and staff at Barry Group held their version of an American Tea Party at their Mallow offices! Staff members hosted tables and invited other members of staff to donate money for a seat at their table. Each host then organised a lunch for their guests.  The tea party proved to be an overwhelming success – not only was it a great way for staff to build relationships with work colleagues, it also raised vital funds for the Irish Cancer Society.
