CMSE Recruiter Ciara O’Dwyer & Chris Mee hand over a cheque for €2000 to Cuanlee Refuge on Kyrl’s Quay, Cork.

Staff from Chris Mee Group recently completed a walkathon in aid of Cuanlee Refuge.

The challenge spearheaded by CMSE Recruiter Ciara O’Dwyer & CMSE Consultant Michael Gleeson was for the Cork and Dublin based teams to walk (privately & socially distant) from their own office location to the other respectively. This would amount to approximately 500KM total. The teams quickly exceeded the KM’s for the walk and hit over 1100KM’s. The teams raised almost €1000 through the challenge which Chris Mee Group matched to bring the final donation amount to €2000!
