Hewlett Packard’s volunteering initiative benefits Galway Hospice

DSCN1738 (Copy)Recently, a group of staff from Hewlett Packard Galway, as part of their Employee Engagement Forum which provides practical hands-on support for community-based charities, offered their services to Galway Hospice.  And we were delighted to accept their generous offer!   The team came to Galway Hospice last week and spent half a day sorting and packaging our Christmas Cards for this year.  And what a super-efficient team they were!  If you got in their way you’d end up sorted, boxed and labelled before you could say “ho,ho, ho”!  Getting them to stop the production line to “face the camera” was a bit of a challenge, but we succeeded, with the promise of some of Joe’s scones afterwards.  Thanks, ladies and gentlemen, for being such highly productive, hugely proud, happy packers from HP
