Dublin Port Company announces charity partnership with Aware

Dublin Port Company is pleased to announce that it has formed a new charity partnership with Aware, which this year marks 30 years of raising awareness and providing support, education and information around depression.  The announcement was made today by Bernard Brogan, Dublin footballer, All-Star and Aware Ambassador along with Senator Feargal Quinn as they gathered at North Wall Lighthouse to shine a light on the invaluable services that Aware provides.

The aim of the partnership is to help promote awareness of the range of vital support and education services Aware provides to people experiencing difficulties in their life.  Aware will be provided with the platform to promote its services to thousands of attendees at Dublin Port’s community events and festivals throughout the year, including the June Riverfest festival which attracted over 46,000 attendees in 2014.  Dublin Port will also lend its support to Aware’s fundraising ventures, beginning with the annual Harbour2Harbour Walk on St. Patrick’s Day (Tuesday, March 17th).

Dominic Layden, Chief Executive Officer of Aware said; “We are really delighted to partner with Dublin Port Company in this our 30th year. Aware’s services are a gateway to help and recovery for people who are experiencing depression and other challenges in life. And of course Dublin Port and its facilities provide an invaluable gateway to so many aspects of everyday Irish life. We are really looking forward to working with them and reaching even more people with the help of this new partnership. ”

Eamonn O’Reilly, Chief Executive, Dublin Port Company said; “For the last 30 years Aware has been making a real difference to the lives of families and individuals in communities right across the country. Dublin Port Company recognises that it too, has a role to play in the community, whether from an educational, sporting or social perspective.  We are proud to support Aware and play a part in the crucial work that they do.”

Dublin footballer and Aware board member Bernard Brogan said; “Aware provides all of its support services free of charge and this is only possible through the support and generosity of the public and partnerships like this one with Dublin Port. I’ve no doubt that Dublin Port Company’s support will help raise vital funds for the charity’s work, as well as awareness of the great services it provides for people who are facing challenges in life.”
