A very big thank you to all Friends First staff who supported our recent Bake Off in aid of Aware. The event was a great success with staff taking time to bake cakes, enter the competition and donate to a worthy cause. The impressive display and variety of cakes left no doubt that there are many talented bakers in Friends First!
Together we raised circa €1,300 for Aware. Friends First will match this donation which means we will be donating circa €2,600 to Aware.
Aware is one of three charity partners supported by Friends First. Other partners include the Irish Cancer Society and Lessons for Life. The aim of the partnership is to promote mutually beneficial engagement and support between the charity and Friends First, which includes fundraising and staff volunteering to work with the selected charities.
Aware provides a range of vital support and education services to people impacted by stress, depression, bipolar and mood disorders. As a mental health charity, Aware are aligned with our role as a health insurer and as an employer committed to supporting our staff in healthy living and awareness.
