Active Retirement Ireland (ARI) today launched their “Share the Experience” winter fundraising campaign. The organisation, which has over 25,000 members nationwide, is hoping to introduce the Active Retirement Ireland experience to over 1500 new members over the next year.
Speaking at the launch, CEO of Active Retirement Ireland, Maureen Kavanagh, said: “Like all charitable organisations, Active Retirement Ireland is really feeling the pinch. As an organisation, we are committed to enabling older people in Ireland to get the most out of retirement and we need support to deliver that important message. We believe that retirement is only the beginning, and getting involved with your local Active Retirement is a great way to stay happy, healthy and connected. We greatly appreciate our corporate partners for their help as we spread that important message.”
Karl Schutte, Managing Director of Home Instead Senior Care in Ballsbridge, said: “We are delighted to support Active Retirement Ireland as they spread the word about health and connectivity in older age. ARI are striving to enable older people to live life to the full and this should be supported. We urge other organisations to get behind their fundraising drive this winter.”
Dolores Madden, Marketing Director at Hidden Hearing, said: “We’re thrilled to partner with Active Retirement Ireland on their “Share the Experience” campaign. It is great to see a charity with a refreshingly positive approach to encouraging older people to live life to the full. We believe this empowers their members in practical and inspiring ways to lead full and active lives in retirement. This approach mirrors our own philosophy at Hidden Hearing as we work to promote the positive benefits of looking after hearing health in order to enjoy a happy and healthy life post retirement.”
