The County Carlow Chamber of Commerce were pleased to present Delta Centre with €1551.71 which was raised by members through a series of events hosted towards the end of last year. Over the past number of years, the Chamber has hosted “Chamber Members for Charity”, a series of events in support of its nominated charity partner for the year, and despite the challenges of the pandemic the members were intent on continuing this support of local charities.
Delta Centre the chosen charity partner for 2021. Having first opened its doors over 33 years ago, the centre provides, Day, Residential and Respite services to adults with intellectual disabilities along with being providing an oasis of peace and tranquillity for all in the Delta Sensory Gardens. The name Delta stands for development, education, learning, training, and activation. But it also signifies a triangle, open at one end, sheltered by three sides, but still leaving room to grow.
The 2021 Chamber Members for Charity programme, while impacted by the restrictions offered companies the opportunity to work with an expert in GDPR and Data to review their business and advise and support them. In addition, a second programme brought business leaders together for a Leadership and Wellbeing skills training session. The programme of events was supported by Carlow County Council and the Carlow Local Enterprise Office, with the funds for participation all going to Chamber Members for Charity.
President of the County Carlow Chamber Colin Duggan, on presenting the funds raised to Joe Meaney of Delta Centre said “The last 2 years have been challenging for businesses and communities everywhere, however our support of local services like Delta Centre who are there for the members of our community is vital. The Chamber Members for Charity series has worked to highlight and support a number of local charities over the last few years, and we are delighted to continue this especially when this support is most needed.”
