Croí is honoured to have been chosen as Aurivo’s charity partner for 2019. Each year, Aurivo choose a different charity to support in an effort to give back to the local community. Throughout the year, Aurivo employees, members and customers are running a series of events to help support the Courtyard Apartments at Croí House.
The Courtyard Apartments are a much-needed facility which allow family members to be as close as possible to patients who are in hospital for cardiac or stroke care in Galway University Hospitals. The apartments are open 365 days a year and have a 98% occupancy rate, with many families coming from the Mid/North West. Due to the high demand of the facility, Croí is extremely grateful for Aurivo’s support in helping us to continue providing this vital service to families all across Ireland.
In an event of total serendipity, the day Aurivo announced their partnership with Croí, a member of their staff required the services of the Courtyard Apartments. Energy Manager, Marty Dervin, who has worked with Aurivo for over 30 years, travelled to Galway after he experienced a problem with his stents following a heart attack in 2011. Marty had previously been unaware of the Courtyard Apartments which meant that the situation was a complete coincidence. Croí was delighted to help Marty and his family, who are from Ballina, and because of the Courtyard Apartments, he was able to undergo his procedure immediately.
The Courtyard Apartments at Croí House are there for those in need. They consist of three self-contained ground floor accommodation units, located just a ten-minute walk from University Hospital Galway. They are funded entirely by donations and events organised by Croí and have supported families from all over Ireland and even internationally.
