Event Description

EDIC Donegal and Gaeltacht got together with Abbotts Ireland volunteers to organise a family fun day in Bundoran library to highlight careers available to graduates in STEM subject related fields. In 2011 Abbotts Ireland won the European Employee Volunteering Award. The Awards recognise companies across Europe with employee volunteer programmes that help people increase their employability skills.
Abbott won the ‘Newcomer’ category for its employee volunteering efforts in respect of the company’s innovative science education programmes – Abbott Family Science and Operation Discovery. In addition, Abbott was recognised for its participation in Business in the Community Ireland’s Schools’ Business Partnership programme.
In Bundoran, Abbotts volunteers worked with 70 children & their parents to make them aware of the rewarding careers open to graduates in STEM related fields.
This event was totally booked out and reviews received were extremely positive.
