Two worthy charities have benefitted to the tune of €5,000 each thanks to a scheme run by drinks giant Diageo to foster a safe work environment.
On Friday last Drogheda man James Martin who works in the engineering section of Diageo presented a cheque for €5,000 to Ann Tracey of the Gary Kelly Cancer Support Centre.
Under Diageo’s Injury Free workplace Incentive Scheme, the company pays €10,000 to the staff for every injury free month with the money to be given to be given to the two charities of their choice.
