Innovate staff with harpist Mollie Carroll at Busking for Barnardos in Gorey  

Our community supporters were very busy this summer. We had raffles, bake sales, Irish dancing competitions, golf tournaments, an endurance motorcycling event, Dublin Mini Marathon runners and even Busking for Barnardos in Gorey Town. The employees of Innovate Business Technology raised over €3,000 for their two chosen charities, Barnardos and North Wexford Hospice. Thank you so much to all of you for your ongoing support to Barnardos. You are helping to transform vulnerable children’s lives!

The August Bank Holiday weekend started with a Vintage Festival in Dalkey in aid of Barnardos. The event saw 4 model T Fords, Mustangs, Ferrari’s and the fabulous Alpha Romeo Club in attendance. There was also vintage clothes, children’s face painting and story-telling and a formula one simulator to entertain all the family. The event was a great success raising just under 3k. A big congratulations to Brian Wallace and Camillo Borza for a really successful event. Thank you to all who donated to Barnardos on the day!
