Glenman Corporation has a long history of supporting communities and worthy causes in Ireland and the UK
Our success as a business affords us the opportunity to give back to community groups whose activities inspire others and make a real difference in people’s lives. We have twice sponsored the Race in Pink event that helps raise vital funds for the National Breast Cancer Research Institute. The Institute is a national charity based in the University Hospital in Galway. These funds are vital for improving treatments and outcomes for women in Ireland and across the world. In 2018 the event raised an impressive €95,000. It was an even greater success in 2019 with €150,000 raised.
In the UK our subsidiary company Frencon Construction not only built the extension to the Edith Kerrison Nursery School & Children’s Centre but also donated funds to aid the development of the centre. Our Contracts Director, Micheál Conneally commented that “As contractors, we work not only to build to the highest standards of quality but also to enable clients like London Borough of Newham to provide places which help all children to get the best start in life”.
We take a proactive approach to helping young people in their development. We are proud to support the Athenry Music School, a non-profit community music school that nurtures the talents of young people through music education. The school began life in 2007 with just a handful of educators and 50 students. Since then it has grown to over 500 students and 25 teachers and continues to play an important role in the community’s social and cultural development.
We believe that sport plays a vital role in communities which is why we have been long-time supporters of clubs such as the Claregalway Ladies Football Team, the Glenamaddy GAA Club and the Galway Women’s Football Team.
We also believe in fostering a working environment where staff can take the initiative to raise funds for worthy causes. Glenman staff raised badly needed funds for the Join Our Boys Trust, a community-based organisation dedicated to raising awareness of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), a condition that affects one in every 3500 boys. It was launched in Roscommon in 2014 to support the families of those affected by DMD.
