Kildare animal charity My Lovely Horse Rescue receives funding from digital company

Team members from three TELUS International Ireland sites in Cork, Dublin and Mayo took part in the TELUS Days of Giving virtual challenge to walk, run or cycle 200km, the equivalent of the Ring of Kerry. Funds raised will support vital services for people with depression and bipolar disorder through Aware, as well as My Lovely Horse Rescue’s efforts to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome equines and other animals at its centers in Cork and Kildare. .

In addition, 80 TELUS International Ireland team members volunteered at the My Lovely Horse Rescue center in Kildare. The team completed four main tasks in four hours: revamping the power room with a new layout and adding storage units; creation of a playground for dogs; planting a “farm” of herbs and medicinal plants; and rejuvenating the garden to make it a quiet place for volunteers, as well as painting and general maintenance.

Speaking at the volunteer event, Roger Clancy, Vice President Operations and Managing Director of TELUS International Ireland, said: “It’s fantastic to be here with our team members today as as a volunteer with one of our charity partners, My Lovely Horse Rescue. Supporting the community is at the heart of our culture at TELUS International and making a meaningful impact is a priority for our team members.

He added: “We are very proud of the team’s recent fundraising efforts to raise €44,000 for their two chosen charities, Aware and My Lovely Horse Rescue.

Daniela Illuminati, Senior Site Manager at TELUS International, said, “I am thrilled to join the team members for our TELUS Days of Giving event. This is an opportunity for us to give back to our community. Volunteer Days are an integral part of TELUS International Ireland’s award-winning CSR programme.

In addition to raising €44,000, which will be split equally between TELUS International Ireland’s non-profit partners, My Lovely Horse Rescue and Aware, each member of the team who took up the TELUS Days of Giving virtual challenge had the opportunity to have five trees planted in their name or to help develop recycling ecosystems in coastal communities.

Globally, TELUS Days of Giving events bring together team members and retirees, along with their families and friends in each of the regions where TELUS International operates to have a powerful positive impact in their local communities.
