Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) was presented with a cheque for €1,000 by Dublin Bus employees at Ringsend Depot recently.

The funding will be used in the Centre for Cardiovascular risk in Younger Persons at the Adelaide & Meath Hospital, Tallaght.

Dublin Bus received the Corporate Endeavour Award along with €1,000 at South Dublin County Council’s Community Endeavour Awards, for its commitment to supporting community activity.
However kind-hearted staff at Dublin Bus decided to give the award back to the South Dublin Community and asked employees to vote for the organization which they wanted to receive the grant.
