At a presentation in Clomel Forty-seven clubs and organisations in communities throughout Tipperary and neighbouring counties have received life saving defibrillator machines from the staff of Boston Scientific in Clonmel. Employees of the American multi-national plant that manufactures pacemakers raised more than €40,000 last year to purchase Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) for social clubs and community organisations in Tipperary, Waterford, Kilkenny, Cork and Clare.
Employees within the company were given the opportunity to look out into their own local communities, assess the need for an AED and make a nomination on behalf of a club or organisation they were part of.
The staff ran marathons, climbed mountains, grew strange looking moustaches and organised bake sales along with many other events throughout the year to raise the money for the AEDs. The medical equipment, which help people suffering heart attacks, were presented to representatives of the 47 benefiting organisations at a ceremony in Boston Scientific last Friday afternoon.
Among the South Tipperary AED recipients were Clonmel Celtic Football Club, Newcastle GAA Club, Carrick On Suir Taekwon-Do Association, Cahir Scouts Club and the Nagle Centre Cashel. Boston Scientific Engineering Director John Cooney said their annual charity campaign allows the company to give back to the local community.
“It is something that is valued greatly by our employees, a large portion of who live here.
“Despite the economic pressures that have impacted every person in Ireland over the last year, our employees again reached deep into their pockets throughout 2010 to give their hard earned cash towards various fundraisers that made the provision of the 47 AEDs possible.” This was the fourth year in a row that Boston Scientific Clonmel’s 700 strong workforce has raised more than €40,000 in aid of their annual site charity.
In the past, the funds raised have gone to CARE and Cuan Saor, both based in Clonmel and the Camphill Community based in Carrick-on-Suir.
