Over the last 14 years, Tobermore MD David Henderson has donated over £280,000 to Barnardo’s NI (Northern Ireland). The company opts to support local charities in lieu of Christmas gifts.
By supporting the Barnardo’s Christmas appeal, Tobermore helps vulnerable children and families facing financial difficulty across Northern Ireland to feel included in the magic of Christmas. Tobermore’s annual donation helps Barnardo’s support those in need at Christmas time by providing nourishing food, warm clothes, and bedding.
Glenn Robinson, General Manager at Tobermore presented Barnardo’s Regional Relationship Manager, Aoibheann Doherty, with a cheque of £20,000.
Glenn Robinson, General Manager at Tobermore commented:
“Supporting charitable causes is an important part of our company’s ethos. 2021 has been a particularly tough year financially for many families and whilst Christmas is a time of gifts and celebration, for many, it can be a stressful experience. In making this charitable donation in lieu of Christmas gifts, we really hope to make Christmas a special time for everyone.”
Barnardo’s NI is the largest children’s charity in Northern Ireland, supporting over 12,000 children, young people, and their families through a range of programmes and services. The charity provides over 40 services for children and young people and delivers educational support programmes in over 200 schools.
