A huge Thank you to all at Cork Institute of Technology who hosted a
social coffee morning in the Dining Hall in the Tourism Building for Clients and Volunteers of Friendly Call Cork on Tuesday, 10th April.
All our clients and volunteers had an absolutely fantastic morning in CIT. From the moment we arrived we couldn’t have been looked after better. The students were all so brilliant from greeting us, to guiding us into the Dining Hall and the wonderful cakes and treats were just superb. Most importantly, all our clients really appreciated the time that the students and the entire team gave to having a chat with them.
Most of our clients had never been to CIT before and I know now that those living in the area will become frequent visitors to the campus.
To Margaret Linehan, Ruth Farrell, Orla Flynn and all the team and students who made this visit possible, thank you so much.
