Irish Examiner - County - - News -

AN elec­tric tr­ishaw, do­nated by PFH Tech­nol­ogy Group, to St Luke’s Nurs­ing Home in Black­rock in Cork will see res­i­dents ex­pe­ri­ence a greater qual­ity of life.

The ges­ture by the man­aged ser­vices com­pany PFH is part of a cy­cling with­out age ini­tia­tive. Oon­agh O’ Driscoll, fundrais­ing and mar­ket­ing man­ager at St Luke’s Home said: “We are adamant that our res­i­dents are given ev­ery op­por­tu­nity to live their lives and not to sim­ply ex­ist. Qual­ity of life is so im­por­tant - we ar­range for as many of our res­i­dents as pos­si­ble to go out in the com­mu­nity, ex­pe­ri­ence the joys of meet­ing other peo­ple and en­gage in life’s events.”

CEO of PFH Tech­nol­ogy Group, Paul Callaghan said “sup­port­ing the ini­tia­tive is great fun and know­ing that vol­un­teer ‘pi­lots’ from our of­fices at PFH will also help out is ex­cit­ing”.

“Th­ese ‘pi­lots’ will be mak­ing a real dif­fer­ence, while at the same time en­joy­ing them­selves in the com­pany of ex­pe­ri­enced peo­ple who have a lot to tell them.”
