PFH gives trishaw to St Luke’s to help residents enjoy a little more mobility
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.”
