Our team give their time and commitment to various charities and causes throughout the year.
Below is a snapshot of the activities we have been involved in over the years.
100K in 30 Days
We are proud to be a main sponsor of the 100K in 30 Days event once again.
The national event which is a fun initiative, aimed at casual strollers, keen walkers, joggers and seasoned runners alike is open to everyone from ages 4-84, and invites participants to walk, jog, run or wheel a total of 100km (or more!) during the month of June to help raise funds for Ireland’s leading breast cancer charity, Breast Cancer Ireland.
We invite you to join the #pinkarmy now! Volunteer, Participate or Sponsor us.
Proceeds from the event will help to fund life-saving research and the provision of good breast health education and awareness programmes nationwide by Breast Cancer Ireland, who plan to channel funds raised by the #PinkArmy through the event this year into 3 specific areas:
Clinical Trials Centre
Education & Awareness
The UHY FDW team are taking part in this event in 2021 to once again raise awareness and funds for this great cause. Support our team and donate to this great cause.
Other Recent projects
Louth SPCA – Some of our team have helped out a couple of times over the last few years with the Louth SPCA, visiting the dogs to help with walking, feeding and of course playing. We also make donations of food and other supplies.
The Louth Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has been in existence for over 50 years and is an affiliate of the ISPCA.
The ISPCA’s role is to prevent cruelty to animals, to promote animal welfare and to pro-actively relieve animal suffering in Ireland. The ISPCA supports the aims of similarly minded animal welfare bodies throughout the world. The ISPCA believes that animals have the right to live their lives free from needless suffering and aim to rescue, rehabilitate and responsibly rehome animals that are subjected to cruelty or neglect. They also believe that all animals have an intrinsic value entirely independent of their value or use to man and should be respected and protected accordingly.
We support that mission.
Daffodil Day is the Irish Cancer Society’s biggest fundraiser, taking place each year in March and raising millions of euro to support cancer patients and their loved ones by providing free advice and support, as well as by funding life-saving cancer research. Previously UHY FDW held our own ‘Yellow Day’ in the office to raise funds for this very worthy charity, through selling daffodils, wearing yellow as a symbol of support and a healthy eating initiative.
After a tough year for many in 2020, the UHY FDW team finished up the year raising funds for people in need.
We raised funds with raffles, Christmas jumper days and a food drive.
UHY FDW matched the funds raised by the team, so the totals we sent to our selected charities were:
- Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation €430
- SOSAD Ireland €492
- Save Our Homeless Dundalk €630
- Remember Us €330
- St. Vincent de Paul €342
As well as a huge amount of food and toiletry donations sent to St. Patrick’ Parish Soup Kitchen.
