The Maples Group's Dublin and London offices are proud to announce that they have once again chosen to support both Barnardo's UK and Barnardos Ireland with special Christmas donations this year.

The donations follow calls for additional support from both charities, who anticipate that even more children and their families will face extreme hardship this winter. 

Barnardo's UK and Barnardos Ireland provide essential services to support vulnerable children and young people, through one simple aim - to provide the best outcome for every child, regardless of their background and circumstances. 

Ireland Managing Partner, Peter Stapleton said, "We are delighted to be able to make a donation again this year to these two very worthy causes. 2021 has unfortunately posed big challenges to young people and Barnardo's UK and Barnardos Ireland play a key role in the provision of vital services to those in need, at what can be a very bleak time of year for many families."

Commenting on the donations, London Managing Partner, Heidi de Vries added, "The current climate remains very uncertain and as such continues to have a detrimental impact on children and their families. We are extremely privileged to be in a position to support Barnardo's UK and Barnardos Ireland again this year and to enable them in a small way to continue the invaluable work that they do." 

Mary Gamble, Director of Fundraising for Barnardos Ireland commented, "We are very grateful to receive this generous donation and thank the Maples Group for its continued support. The funds will help us to continue to provide much needed assistance to vulnerable children and their families during this difficult time."

The donations to Barnardo's UK and Barnardos Ireland are in addition to the Maples Group's combined and extensive global corporate social responsibility initiatives in 2021, and underscore the Group's commitment to giving back to local communities where they operate.
