We are delighted to share that Atlantic Aviation Group raised a total of €29,063 for two charities through a number of fundraising events from our ‘Making a Difference’ initiative. From March 2020 – March 2021, various fundraising activities were initiated by the committee and was supported through generous donations from AAG personnel, suppliers and the wider community. Generous donations were accepted from Atlantic Aviation Group and Patrick Jordan, Executive Chairman of AAG.
On March 30th 2021, we were honoured to present €14,243 to Bunratty Search & Rescue and €14,820 to Milford Care Centre. Presented by the Making a Difference committee alongside Patrick Jordan, Executive Chairman, and Shane O’Neill, CEO, the team were humbled to learn the impact the donation will make to each charity. We are very grateful to have worked alongside two deserving charities as they navigate through one of the most challenging times for fundraising which has been hindered due to the global pandemic. We wish both charities every success in 2021 and beyond.
