Below is a snapshot of some of the charities we have worked with.
Debra Ireland Coffee Morning
Mazars hosted a coffee morning in aid of Debra Ireland. The morning included tea, coffee, butterfly cupcakes and butterfly tattoos in return for donations from the staff.
Depaul's Raft Race
Fantastic day and fantastic teams come out in force each year for the Depaul Ireland's annual raft race against homelessness at Grand Canal Dock. Well done to Mazars defending champions "Allen les Blues" who won for the 3rd year in a row!
School Business Partnership
Students from Clifden Community School
Mazars Galway were involved with Clifden Community School as part of the Schoool Business Programme. This involved a site visit for students to our offices in Galway to experience a day in the life of Mazars. During this session, the students interview members of staff in groups of four for five minutes per employee. They have the opportunity to enquire as to what the individual studied in secondary and third level, what experience and previous employment they have; and to discuss the position the individual currently holds in Mazars. The employees we pick for this session come from varied backgrounds such as those that studied law and engineering and have now chosen to train as accountants, to others who have completed post leaving certificate courses, masters or returned to education as mature students and also individuals that have taken a more straightforward route. The students gain an understanding that there are different routes which can be taken to gain employment. Following the interviews, each group then presents back to members of staff, their class and teachers on one of the individuals they interviewed. Mazars Galway Partner, Eugene McMahon met the students and showed a presentation on how he had gotten to his position within the firm.
Ronald McDonald House
For the last few years volunteers from Mazars put their culinary skills to the test cooking meals for the families of seriously ill children in Ronald McDonald House, Crumlin Hospital. The house provides accommodation and a caring and supportive environment for families whose children are seriously ill and are hospitalised or undergoing medical treatment.
Afternoon Tea - Daffodil Day
Tea and cake are plentiful in the Mazars office every year on Daffodil Day in aid of the Irish Cancer Society. Staff are invited to bring their children along for the afternoon.
Charity Run - Irish Heart Foundation
Mazars Dublin and Galway staff came out in force to participate in a charity 5-10k run in aid of the Irish Heart Foundation.
Simon Community Christmas Donation
Instead of sending Christmas Cards or Gifts, Mazars make a donation to the Simon House of Cards Appeal, helping to address the problem of homelessness in Ireland.
