Abbey Machinery team cycled to work raising funds for Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal

Nearly 25 team members cycled to work ahead of the St. Patrick's Day weekend raising funds for the Irish Red Cross Ukraine Appeal. The group met at the Abbey Court Hotel and cycled out to the factory in Toomevara. The company pledged a donation towards the Irish Red Cross for each participant. 

For those not cycling, team members shared photos from their 5k walks over the weekend to continue to raise funds. 

In addition to the cycle and walk, thee Abbey team contributed to a collection earlier in the month sending donations of food, clothing and toiletries to Poland to support refugees crossing the border from Ukraine. 

Thanks to everyone’s efforts in the Cycle to Work and Virtual 5K, Abbey Machinery donated €2,500 to the Irish Red Cross Ukraine Crisis Appeal. Contributions to the collection drive and serval other individual donations for Ukraine relief resulted in a total of €3,500 in donations from Abbey Machinery for Ukraine relief in March.
