On Monday, Karina Toolan of the Irish Cancer Society was presented with a ceremonial donation cheque by two members of our EMT, Group Finance Director Ronan Lynch and Head of Risk and Corporate Development Patrick Hickey-Dwyer.
Karina Toolan said: “On behalf of everyone at the Irish Cancer Society, I’d like to say a huge thanks to all of the staff at Mercury Engineering, who as part of their ‘Be Brave – Stand Up to Cancer’ campaign have raised over €41, 000 to support people affected by cancer throughout Ireland.
“These incredible funds will go towards our night nursing service, our volunteering driving service, our cancer nurse line and will also fund vital cancer research.”

According to the European Commission, every year 1.3 million people die from cancer and 3.5 million new cases are diagnosed across the European Union.
