Chef John Core from Callan was one of the winners of a Corporate Citizenship Award from his employer, the food and facilities provider Sodexo Ireland.
He won for his contribution towards the company’s Better Tomorrow Plan by taking on the role of charity champion for a year. During this period, he co-ordinated the company’s fund-raising activities and secured almost €23,000 for its two designated charities, the Society of St Vincent de Paul and Barnardos.
Sodexo Ireland managing director Jeremy Dicks praised John for all his hard work, saying : “The Better Tomorrow Plan encapsulates all our corporate responsibility commitments. It is extremely important that we get involved and positively contribute to our communities across Ireland where we work. To be responsible for our environment and the health/well-being of our customers and employees is just part of our values and what we do.”
