HandyMac is appealing for a charity or indeed individual case in need of building assistance. HandyMac would like to donate a week of its time to local charity work in the special needs area. are also coming on board with HandyMac for this charity venture.
Pat McEvoy, a well respected tradesman who hails from Johnstown in Co. Kilkenny, has suffered from the recession as we all have but he wants to make use of his free time by donating it to a local person in need or charity.
Pat comments “We have all been hit hard by the turn in the economy but we have to realise that we all have individual skills and talents. I have building skills and others need building skills. I feel for anyone who is in need and can not afford to pay for building services so I want to offer some of my time for free. I am hoping some local building suppliers will donate some materials and we can make a real difference to someone’s life.”
HandyMac is ideally looking for a person with special needs, for example, someone whose house is not accessible for a wheelchair and needs work. Applications are also welcome from local schools or centres catering for special needs. Pat and Linda McEvoy’s beautiful daughter has special needs hence this cause is close to Pat’s heart.
Pat comments “If I can contribute to improving special needs services in Kilkenny and Tipperary by giving a mere week of my personal time, then I will bring a beacon of hope to many in trying times.”
HandyMac are not only appealing for a recipient for their good deeds but they are also taking a list of volunteers to help with the charity project as well as any other businesses who would like to get involved, especially supplier sponsors. Call 056 8831870 for more details.
