On July 26th, 2017, Marie Duffin, Manager of Oakfield Trust handed over €7768.00 to Recycle IT, a community organisation and social enterprise offering electrical recycling services in Dublin and surrounding areas.
This presentation of match funding by Oakfield Trust follows a successful application by Recycle IT for Dormant Accounts Funding through the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs. The combined funding will help increase recycling capacity and grow the numbers of people accessing employer based training to build skills for work.
Members of the Recycle IT board and staff team attended on the evening with Chairperson John McMackin expressing delight with the match funding contribution from Oakfield Trust. John said, “this very generous support makes it possible to execute our plan to deliver community focused electrical recycling services, work experience and employment while also promoting a message of reduce, reuse and recycle.
Marie Duffin said “Oakfield Trust and its board members are pleased to support a fellow social enterprise enhance its operations which in turn supports local communities, employment and environmental goals.
