Staff at Holland & Barrett have donated €5,000 each to two charities in honour of the memory of their colleague Mairead Moran, the victim of a fatal stabbing in Kilkenny earlier this year.

Mairead Moran was 26 years old and had been identified as a star of the future for the business having been a national finalist at the company’s annual Manager of the Year competition. Staff were shocked and very saddened at her death and have been working with Mairead’s family to identify charitable causes that best reflected Mairead’s interests and beliefs.

A donation of €5,000 each will be given to Moorefield House and St Joseph’s care home, both in Kilmoganny. Moorefield House is home to four residents with learning disabilities that are supported by volunteer live-in attendants. It is part of the L’Arche Community, a charity which provides supportive communities in which people with and without learning disabilities share life together, living and also working in the community.

St Joseph’s is a full-time residential home for up to 20 elderly residents that benefit from supported care and assisted living. Both St Joseph’s and Moorefield House are local charities based in Kilmoganny, Mairead’s home village.

Gurdial Flora, chair of Healthy Hope, Holland & Barrett’s staff charity committee said: “We are making these donations in honour of Mairead’s memory and hope they will make some small but important difference to the lives of people in need. We know Mairead always respected the achievements of those who give back to their communities, and feel she would very much approve of today’s donations.”
