Since the establishment of the Aramark Charitable Fund in Ireland in 2008, the fund has raised over €380,000 for its various nominated charities selected each year.


Throughout the year, Aramark employees in Ireland will host and support a number of fundraising initiatives with proceeds raised going towards the three selected charities.


AWARE are delighted to be nominated for this and look forward to the year ahead with Aramark.


Teresa Sloan, Director of Fundraising at AWARE said,

“AWARE is the only mental health charity in Northern Ireland working exclusively for those with depression and bipolar disorder. Being selected by Aramark and representing their Northern Ireland business region is something we are very proud of and appreciate the time employees took to nominate us. Funds raised will go directly towards our services and programmes offered to people with the illness of depression. The money will also help provide education programmes on mental health into schools across Northern Ireland.”


Donal O’Brien, Region President, Aramark Northern Europe said,

“Our ongoing commitment to charities through our employee nomination process is one of the many ways our company supports community involvement, ensuring that we continue to enrich and nourish lives while supporting the communities that we serve.”
