Last week I presented a cheque for €1500.00 to Jacquie Horan of COPE Galway towards the cost of their new shelter for victims of domestic violence.
This charity was nominated by Barry O’Sullivan (CEO of Altocloud & investor on Dragon’s Den, RTE) who waived his speaking fee at our AGM provided we made a significant charitable contribution instead.
This is an impressive charity and is doing a lot of good work for disadvantaged people in Galway. As well as caring for victims of domestic violence, COPE also cater for people sleeping rough and older people who are not able to cook for themselves. They organise activities for older people who have been forgotten by society as well as many other activities.
We wish COPE Galway continued success.
