Early indications demonstrate the potential for this project to deliver a significant return on organisational investments”. n Hello and EM. welcome to the Christmas edition of This is often the time of year for reflection, for looking back at the happenings of the year and how, for better or worse, we have fared through it all. Many of us have colleagues, as well as family and friends, who have been touched by serious tragedies or illnesses. Most of us know friends or relations who are struggling with finances and trying to keep their homes together. however, through it all and the many stories of despair, there is as always in times like these, many wonderful stories where friends, neighbours, colleagues and groups have been doing amazing work in a voluntary capacity to help people through some of the darkest moments in their lives. The recent roadshow hosted by EsB ElectricAiD ireland, which travelled from Dublin to Waterford, Cork, Limerick and sligo was in itself an enlightening event to the many EsB staff who attended the various presentations made by organisations who deal with the tragedies that are suicide and homelessness. Many would admit that while they supported the causes they had never, at first hand, come so close to understanding what is behind these two scourges of our society. Neither subjects are straightforward and there is usually no one reason why people find themselves driven to the despair of taking their own lives. Neither is there often a single factor which leaves somebody homeless but rather a chain of events. The representatives from a wide range of charities around the country gave us insightful presentations which were very well received by all those present and left us in no doubt of how much in need of funds these organisations are. They themselves were truly inspiring people who give so much to a wide range of bodies. This Christmas more than ever, they will be hard pressed to deliver services to a growing number of problems. Please remember those in most need at this particular time of the year and be grateful and appreciative of good health and happiness. May we wish you and your loved ones a happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year.
