Calor Ireland partners with Samaritans Ireland

In 2020, Calor Ireland and Samaritans Ireland began a charity partnership. Samaritans Ireland are a charity that provides emotional support to those who need it most; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year across Ireland by providing a free helpline manned by volunteers.

Calor Ireland staff selected Samaritans Ireland as its charity partner because both are deep rooted in communities across Ireland. Calor Ireland have been supporting Samaritans Ireland’s work and helping to grow awareness of their mental health services through social media.

Since the partnership commenced, Calor Ireland have raised over €110,000 for Samaritans Ireland from both staff and company donations.

Your 24 Challenge

In 2022, Calor Ireland staff participated in Samaritans’ ‘Your 24’ Challenge, where collectively they covered 17,250 kilometres. Calor Ireland organised walks in Dublin and Belfast’s parks where staff could come together with their friends, families and dogs in support of Samaritans Ireland.

Calor Ireland has extended its partnership with Samaritans Ireland until 2025 and look forward to continuing its very productive partnership and support the communities that lie at the heart of what they do.
