The Lough Credit Union Sponsors Cork City Missing Persons Search and Recovery

The Lough Credit Union Sponsors Large Amount to Cork City Persons Search and Recovery

As many of you many know, last week was Credit Union Week, and what better way to finish it off than by giving €1,000 in sponsorship to a fantastic charity?

On Friday, 20th October, 2017, The Lough Credit Union generously donated €1,000 to Cork City Missing Person Search and Recovery and you can see why below:

 

Cork City Missing Persons Search and Recovery

Cork City Missing Persons Search and Recovery has been around for the past 13 years and has been providing a much needed and appreciated service to our local communities. A registered charity based in Cork City, CCMPSAR conducts land and water based missing persons searches throughout Cork city & county and Ireland. Their services are free of charge and they will respond to call outs from Gardaí, Coast guard and family members of missing persons.

The service that they provide to the community or  family of a missing person is like no other. CCMPSAR meet these families in their darkest hour. Oftentimes, these families never knew that a voluntary service such as CCMPSAR existed, but they are always so thankful once known.  Speaking of their services, Chairman Edwin O’Sullivan states that,

“It is important to us to give these families hope and reassurance from the time they meet us that we will do everything within our power to search for and recover their loved one. Our search lengths vary from days to weeks to months and for this time we will continue to search. We utilize various pieces of equipment  such as boats, side scan sonar, which takes a live video feed of the river bed from our boat, a remote air drone and our dive section”.

 

Details of Sponsorship

The Lough Credit Union has always known about Cork City Missing Persons Search and Recovery and has wanted to donate for a long time. With this in mind, we reached out and contacted CCMPSAR to sponsor them €1,000, which they will use towards equipment and their services. It is important to The Lough Credit Union that we help our local community as much as humanly possible. We care about each person in our community and want our community to know just how much we care. We are thrilled to be able to give to such a worthy cause and to have our support mean so much to them.

Cork City Missing Persons Search and Recovery’s Thanks to The Lough Credit Union

Following on from the above, Chairmand Ediwn O’Sullivan stated:

“The sponsorship from the Lough Credit Union will help us in the maintenance and purchasing of new equipment. It will ensure that our crew members will be able to provide our service in a safe manner. Without donations such as this, our searches would be a lot harder both mentally and physically. We are absolutely honoured that we where chosen by The Lough Credit Union and would like to thank them for the service they have provided us for years”.
