Each year, in association with the Irish Professional Photographers Association, Redmonds undertake a fundraiser for a particular charity. Redmonds give their time and materials free of charge and each participant receives receives a complimentary portrait for their donation to the charity of 25 euro. This year they selected the ‘Buddy Bench’ Programme, which teaches young children invaluable life coping skills from a very young age. With its ethos of ‘Look Up, Look Around and Look Out for Each Other’ – a team of trained psychologists visit each school and work with the teacher and children at no cost to the school or parents.Each portrait participant was invited to nominate a school and the winner was Corville NS., Roscrea.
To celebrate 40 years in businesses is a commendable achievement but to give children a means to learn coping skills that will help them throughout their lives is nothing short of amazing and encompasses everything that Redmonds business motto has always stood for – ‘For the Times of Your Life’
Details of this innovative programme can be found on Buddy Bench Ireland
