Every year, we raise funds for our chosen charities. Here at BH Consulting we know how important it is to give back, especially at this time of year. Each year, we donate to specific charities as chosen by our team. Each staff member is allowed to nominate a charity of their choice to receive a donation of €500. This year staff at BH Consulting provided charities with €10,000 in donations.
Please see below for more information on the incredible work these charities do for people in need and visit their websites to learn more.

Aoibheann’s Pink Tie
Aoibheann’s Pink Tie help and offer practical support to the families of children diagnosed with cancer and who are attending St John’s Oncology Ward in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital. Focused on children attending the only treatment centre for childhood cancer in Ireland, they support the complete family unit, of parents and siblings, who may not understand what is happening to their Brother or Sister. The charity was formed by Mick Rochford and Jimmy Norman after the tragic loss of Jimmy’s daughter Aoibheann to cancer, aged just 8 years old. The charity was formed in her memory to remedy the lack of support for other children and their families going through treatment.
