We are delighted to share that in 2019, Atlantic Aviation Group raised a total of €7,720 for charity through a number of fundraising events through our ‘Making a Difference’ initiative. Funds were raised through generous donations from employees, along with donations from the company and Patrick Jordan, Executive Chairman of Atlantic Aviation Group. On February 25th, we were honoured to present an equal donation of €3,860 to Marie from Irish Motor Neuron Disease Association and Margaret and Barry from Foynes Flying Boat & Maritime Museum. 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 and look forward to working with two new charities in 2020.
