Mason Hayes & Curran celebrates CSR causes
Mason Hayes & Curran hosted a special presentation in its offices to celebrate the causes supported by the firm’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme.
Dispute resolution partner Richard Woulfe was joined by representatives from charities supported through the firm’s RISE Programme, which focuses on education for disadvantaged people in Ireland.
Mr Woulfe (pictured) introduced the showcase before handing over to representatives from Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland (AADI), Pieta House, Mercy Law Resource Centre, the Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA), Young Social Innovators and ChildVision.
Susan Martins from AADI brought assistance dog Ruby to the event and spoke about the difference Ruby has made to her autistic son’s life.
Brian Higgins, CEO of Pieta House, explained how they benefited from the €450,000 Engage and Educate fund, a three-year commitment between MHC, Social Innovation Fund Ireland and the Government.
Conor Casey from Mercy Law Resource Centre spoke about the free compassionate and professional legal service the Centre provides to those already homeless or at risk of becoming so.
Vanessa Moss discussed the children’s art education programme RHA Kids, while Rachel Collier, co-founder and CEO of Young Social Innovators spoke about her project to help young people tackle difficult social issues, advocating reform and advancing change.
