Trigon Hotels And Cope Foundation Celebrate National Award

Trigon Hotels has won the ‘Partnership with a Charity’ category at the 2022 Sustainable Business Impact Awards, for the hotel group’s ongoing work with Cope Foundation and its Ability@Work programme.

Details

Cope Foundation is Trigon Hotels’ charity of choice for 2021 and 2022. The organisation supports over 2,800 children and adults with intellectual disabilities and/or autism across Cork City and County to live a life of their choosing.

Statements

Aaron Mansworth, managing director of Trigon Hotels, said, “It is a huge achievement to win a Sustainable Business Impact Award and shows what can be achieved by businesses and charities working together. Our relationship with Cope Foundation is about so much more than fundraising. By sharing our skills, we have learned so much from each other, and we have developed lasting friendships along the way. Cork has led the way in terms of inclusion in sport for many years, and now we’re leading the way for inclusion in business. It is important to us that our hotels are as inclusive and diverse as possible, and our partnership with Cope Foundation and Ability@Work is central to that.”

Cope Foundation chief executive Sean Abbott added, “It is wonderful to see the partnership between Trigon Hotels and our organisation recognised at a national level,  however – more importantly – I know that the collaboration has improved the lives of so many people we support. I would like to thank the volunteers from both organisations, who gave up their time, week after week, to design, build and maintain the sensory garden. They worked closely with the students from Bonnington Training Centre, who were able to apply the skills they learned in their horticulture classes. Trigon Hotels has also provided meaningful employment and training opportunities for people supported by our Ability@Work programme and is a fantastic advocate, both locally and nationally.”

Charity Ball

Trigon Hotels will host a charity ball in aid of Cope Foundation and Ability@Work at the Cork International Hotel on Friday 21 October. Tickets for the gala are on sale now, at the Cork International Hotel and the Metropole Hotel.
