Check out what the wonderful team Savills Cork achieved with their Charity Partnership here or some other partner testimonies here;

“Employees of Eli Lilly and Company from Kinsale and Little Island in County Cork were beyond excited to be involved in very special project for our annual Global Day of Service volunteering day in September 2022 (and 2023). In our first ever joint Day of Service project, Lilly team members from both sites volunteered at the Crann Centre, near Ballincollig which works to provide support for people with neuro-physical disabilities. Employees worked together in the sunshine and rain on indoor painting and outdoor landscaping activities, to transform the centre for everyone who uses it. We hope that the work of our hands that day has left an indelible happy mark in the hearts of people at Crann, as you have all left in ours!” – Jean Casey Corporate Affairs Manager – Eli Lilly and Company

“VMware lives through its EPIC2 values, and has a proud tradition and culture around giving and being active in the community. Each employee can take 40 hours of paid working time to contribute time to a cause that they are passionate about. As the world started to return to normal several of our teams were excited to engage with the community once again through our Service-Learning program. From what the team saw at VMware the Crann Centre’s mission of inclusion and enablement really aligned with our values, and we were delighted to play a part in helping in whatever way we could. Indeed, after hearing the story of the Crann Centre members of my own team pressed in to action the paint brushes to help the mission brighten up the environment. It was a very rewarding experience and a privilege to play a small part in what is a remarkable solution for people and their families living with neuro-physical disabilities.” – Mark Fitzgerald Global Senior Director – Global Support at VMware
