INua Raises €90,000 for DS

The iNUA Collection selected Down Syndrome Ireland as their charity partner in 2019. The company is proud to have raised over €90,000 for DSI to date, due to the generosity of colleagues, hotel guests, and the support of the Down Syndrome Ireland team.

At an event in Dublin, the iNUA Collection presented the fundraising cheque to the DSI team, represented by Gerard O’Carroll, DSI President, and Aoife Gaffney, Head of Employment at DSI. Ten of the 15 Down Syndrome Ireland colleagues from across the group’s 12 hotels attended the event, along with their families, People and Culture Managers and General Managers to celebrate the ongoing partnership.

Sean O’Driscoll, CEO of the iNUA Collection, promised the group’s commitment to continuing the €5 per €100 contribution to DSI for all vouchers sold across its hotels, as well as introducing the “Clean the Planet, Not my Room” campaign, where a €1 per room donation is made to DSI on behalf of guests.  

The iNUA Collection organises and takes part in a variety of initiatives across the group to achieve fundraising targets, raise awareness and engage with colleagues and also with guests. These include one-off events in individual hotels such as sponsored charity runs/walks, non-uniform days and afternoon teas.
