Our company has a very long standing tradition of charitable contribution to those in most need in our community.
JD McGeown has supported The Saint Vincent de Paul Society by undertaking work at its South Belfast shop on the Ormeau Road which was in need of electrical work as part of its refurbishment. We also encourage our employees to get actively involved with charitable organisation and we have supported most recently Marie Curie Cancer, Tiny Life, Run for Emmie, Afghan Heroes, and the N Irelands Children’s Hospice.
We also work with organisations such as the Employability Services for Young People in Care where we aim to give young, disadvantaged people the opportunity of entering the job arena and contributing to commercial business success.
In February 2016 David Geddis accomplished a trek of a life time when he reached the summit of the tallest mountain on the African continent and the highest free standing mountain in the world.
David trekked to the peak of Kilimanjaro 5895m and in doing so raised sponsorship for the Cancer Fund for Children a charity which JD Mc Geown willingly supported.
FRIENDS OF CANCER
“Friends” is the leading local cancer charity at the heart of the Cancer Centre at Belfast City Hospital. The charity relies totally on voluntary contributions made from the public. Friends charity makes a real and meaningful difference to thousands of cancer patients and their families across Northern Ireland.
JD McGeown Ltd is pleased to be in a position to extend support to this charity by undertaking electrical work in the administration unit of Friends in Belfast City Hospital. The work was conducted over a number of weeks by our engineers who were mindful to ensure there was minimal disruption to the daily functioning of the Friends team and the relentless work it carries out. The project involved alterations to existing and installation of new data, power, lighting and fire alarms for the new office layout and extension. JD McGeown Ltd made a willing contribution to this very deserving charity of £5,500.
