EPS donates to devastated Philippines community

We are committed to our communities locally and globally!

We recently became aware of the devastating effects of 3 typhoons in 3 weeks which hit Cebu City in the Philippines, affecting the clean water supply.

Timmy Mulchinock, father of our Mallow Stores Manager Tadhg Mulchinock, is a member of the Nano Nagle Birthplace (NNB) committee in Killavullen, Co. Cork, who were determined to help those without a clean drinking water supply in the aftermath of the typhoons.

As well as organising a plant sale at the weekly Killavullen Farmers Market, Timmy leveraged his connections (!) and approached EPS to see if we could help in any way.

The NNB group hold weekly Zoom sessions where they have been recently discussing the United Nations Sustainable Development Group goals, which we are also in alignment with, so we were only too happy to have an opportunity to assist a group making a practical difference on the ground

“As EPS is also aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, we were only too pleased to support the efforts of NNB to restore access to a clean drinking water supply to those affected by the recent typhoon in the Philippines. We have worked on a number of restoration projects and it’s wonderful that the collective efforts of groups such as the NNB in KIllavullen can make a real and impactful difference to those less fortunate
