Northern Irish OEM, SDC Trailers, has announced elderly support charity, Age NI, as its new Charity Partner for 2017-19.
After a period of consultation with staff and a number of prospective charity partners, SDC’s Enda Cushnahan was hugely impressed by Age NI’s presentation and track record.
“We’re delighted to announce that our charity partner this year will be Age NI,” said Cushnahan.
“After speaking to our staff and gathering their opinion on our next charity partner, it became clear that the staff were keen to work with a charity which provides support to older people. Age NI impressed us with the policy work they do, their wide range of support services for older people across Northern Ireland, their care for people with dementia and with the professionalism of their staff and leadership.”
Siobhan Casey, Age NI Director of Marketing & Business Development, welcomed the new partnership.
“Age NI is delighted to be selected as SDC Trailers Charity Partner 2017-2019,” said Casey.
“Through the partnership there will be invaluable opportunities to deliver a range of activities that will support those most in need, especially people who are lonely, who don’t have enough money or require care and support to remain independent.
“Activities include sharing information about our services and how we can help, including our freephone Age NI Advice and Advocacy Service, helping to raise awareness of important issues in later life, supporting our annual campaigns and raising vital funds through a range of exciting events and challenges.
“We look forward to building a strong relationship with SDC Trailers and will work together over the next two years to ensure that people in local communities across Northern Ireland are getting the right support to help make later life better.”
SDC Trailers says it has always taken its corporate social responsibility seriously, raising over £130,000 over the past two years for the Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children.
