Cork ARC's Northside Service Charity Partnership

Gurranabraher Credit Union have announced Cork ARC Cancer Support House as their Charity Partner.

Our friends in Gurranabraher Credit Union will be holding fundraising events over the next twelve months in an effort to raise €20,000 to help Cork ARC provide cancer support services on the Northside of Cork. 

The Gurranabraher Credit Union team will also be encouraging members of the Credit Union to support these events over the coming year. The launch event, a coffee morning, took place on September 22nd, and was well supported by local members of the community, raising €600.00 for the Cork ARC Northside service. 

This partnership initiative provides us with the opportunity to support the people of the Northside in their fight against cancer. This project will highlight what can be achieved when we work together.
— Michael O'Connell, Chairman of Gurranabraher Credit Union
