Charity of the Year
Since we started our Charity of the Year initiative, Aurivo has donated more than €370,000 to charity. Every year, Aurivo chooses a different good cause and all our staff, members, customers and the community work together to raise vital funds for the worthy cause.
The Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) has been selected as Aurivo’s chosen Charity of the Year 2020/2021. Over the course of the next year, Aurivo board members, employees, suppliers, customers and members will organise fundraising events for local branches of the Irish Wheelchair Association across the North West region.
The Irish Wheelchair Association is Ireland’s leading representative organisation and service provider for people with physical disabilities. With 20,000 members, over 2,500 employees, 2,000 volunteers and 57 local community centres the IWA has a vision to create truly inclusive Irish society where people with disabilities enjoy equal rights, choices and opportunities in how they live their lives.
The funds raised will support Irish Wheelchair Association transport needs – without the organisations adapted buses people with physical disabilities have very limited options on transport, especially those is rural Ireland.
