Servisource Recruitment staff participating in The Dundalk 10K 2017
Seven years running, this years road race took place on April 25th at DKIT Sport. Servisource proudly sponsored The Dundalk 10K 2017 and staff from our offices also participated in the run. Also sponsoring the road race were DKIT Sport, Fyffes and Smyth’s Life Pharmacy.
All in aid of two very worthy causes, Oran’s Foundation and The Birches, Dundalk. Oran’s Foundation was founded in 2015 with the aim of fundraising for Oran and other children with multiple and complex disabilities. “Oran was born in 2011 with multiple disabilities, complex medical needs and an uncertain future. During difficulties and setbacks his will and spirit shine through. He has exceeded expectations and has a smile and laugh that uplifts all those around him. Oran has limitations but can continue to thrive and enjoy life with a little help from you”. For more information on Oran’s Foundation you can visit their Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/oransfoundation/
The Birches Dundalk is an Alzheimer’s Day Centre situated in Dundalk, Co. Louth, catering for persons suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or Alzheimer related Dementia. “The ultimate aim of the Centre is to ensure the Clients feel safe and welcome. To aid this feeling scented candles are lit and Potpourri are placed throughout the building. Oils such as Lavender are placed in the Bathrooms and used during bathing. The mood we set is one of relaxation and mellowness. The scents, colour scheme and furniture all combine to create this atmosphere. The activities that are carried out daily very much depend on the Client’s present. We have Knitting, Painting, Pottery, Reminiscence Therapy, Music Sing Songs, Crosswords to name but a few”.
