On 7th December 2016 eleven brave employees of Lagan Construction Group working on the N18 project raised thousands of euros by opting to lose their hair.
Held in Oranmore, Galway, the charity ‘shave off’ involved the removal of nine beards and two full heads of hair.
An impressive €4581.61 was raised in aid of Galway Hospice, a well-deserving charity which provides hospice care to people in the advanced stages of a life-limiting illness.
“The shave-off participants and everyone who dug deep into their own pockets to sponsor the event deserve great credit for their tremendous generosity in raising much needed cash for the Galway Hospice. At a time when most people are tightening the purse strings in preparation for Christmas, Lagan staff on the N18 project, most of whom work away from home and are not from the area, have demonstrated their personal affection and support for the community in which they work.”Kate Kelly, who organised the event
Those involved in the fundraising event included:
As a family run business, Lagan Construction Group recognises the importance of giving back to the community and supporting families and individuals so that they feel safe, secure and valued. As such, Lagan Construction Group would like to warmly congratulate those involved in the event for going above and beyond their day to day duties to give back to the community.
