Many thanks to the German-Irish Chamber of Industry and Commerce who nominated Robert Emmet CDP as charity partner for their 2019 Christmas Lunch which raised an amazing €5,270! And many thanks to their wonderful guests who contributed this amount as well as prize sponsors AUDI, Aer Lingus, Miele and MC-Building Chemicals for making this support possible!
It is hard to fathom the thoughtfulness of the chamber who took the time to identify and support a small charity partner like Robert Emmet CDP out of a crowded Irish charity and not-for-profit field. There is a potential national stereotype on show in the nature of the understated, thoughtful and practical commitment to finding and supporting partner that accords with the ethics and values of the chamber!!
Finally, it was an honour to share a table with German Ambassador to Ireland, Deike Potzel, CEO of the chamber Ralf Lissek and a whole host of other noteworthy and colorful characters cumulatively representing the best in Irish German relations!
