Cairdeas Clubhouse 

Active@Work Award Ceremony

Cairdeas Clubhouse went to the Active @ Work Award Ceremony in the Gibson Hotel on the 28th of November in 2018 to receive their much deserved GOLD Award from the Irish Heart Foundation. They achieved this through all the physical activities they facilitated and took part in throughout the year.

The Clubhouse was represented by Laura and Clubhouse member me James. The award ceremony lasted for 90 minutes, during which time the delegation from Cairdeas was asked onstage and had their photo taken with Tim Collins, CEO, Irish Heart Foundation and the award - a certificate in a glass picture frame.

 

A total of 98 companies and workplaces from around Ireland were recognised for prioritising their employees’ heart health at the Irish Heart Foundation’s annual Healthy Eating and Active@Work Awards. 

    

There are three different levels of achievement – gold, silver and bronze – which are aligned to the Irish Heart Foundation and Department of Health’s Healthy Eating Guidelines. Implementation is overseen by the Irish Heart Foundation’s panel of registered dietitians.

Presenting the awards, Mr Tim Collins, CEO of the Irish Heart Foundation, said: “Workplaces represent an ideal setting in which to support people to make healthy changes to their diet and lifestyle and it is heartening to see so many companies across the country prioritise their employees’ heart health. Achieving these awards requires great commitment and today we recognise the significant effort each of these companies has put into creating healthy, positive working environments for their staff.”

The Irish Heart Foundation’s Healthy Eating and Active@Work Awards are supported by the HSE and Healthy Ireland.
