Mercury has announced its corporate partnership with Aware, a leading mental health charity in Ireland.
Two members of Mercury’s Executive Management Team (EMT) Tony Duddy, Managing Director of Data Centres & Building Services and Joanne Cluxton, Group Human Resources Manager were joined by Aware’s Stephen Butterly, Head of Fundraising and Business Development and Drew Flood, Business Development Executive for a socially distanced partnership launch event outside Mercury’s Dublin Headquarters.
As part of this partnership, Mercury and Aware have committed to working together to promote awareness initiatives around the importance of helping to break down the stigma associated with mental health and to create increased awareness with the construction industry specifically.
Mercury’s staff members, along with many other businesses and individuals across Ireland, are taking part in the Aware 5K run taking place this weekend, Friday 11th – Sunday 13th December. As always, people can walk, jog, run – complete in one go or over a few days. As Aware say, “It’s 5K your way!”.
Our Planet, Our Duty
This initiative forms part of ‘Our Planet, Our Duty’, the responsible business pillar of Beyond50, Mercury’s five-year strategy.
