Leave No Trace Ireland are delighted to announce that we will be partnering with Lidl to deliver ten Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Days over the summer months to Lidl employees across the country. 

Lidl staff will team up with a local community group in their area for the day under the guidance of Leave No Trace Advanced Trainer, Barry Dillion, where they will undertake a range of activities promoting a healthy environment. Each day will kick off with a half hour education workshop on the Leave No Trace 7 Principles. 

Locations for the CSR days include Dublin, Galway, Limerick, Mayo and Antrim to name but a few. The teams will be working in key rural and urban areas across the country to clean up well used community facilities such as the Phoenix Park in Dublin and Merlin Woods in Galway. 

Maura Kiely, CEO of Leave No Trace Ireland, said, “We are thrilled to be working with Lidl to deliver a series of Corporate Responsibility Days. These days are brilliant for team building and creating meaningful connections within the community, as well as making a difference to the planet!” 

Owen Keogh, Head of CSR of Lidl Ireland and Northern Ireland, said, “One of our core values is to have a positive impact on our local communities, we are delighted to be partnering up with Leave No Trace as part of our Lidl Helping Hands volunteer programme. All Lidl colleagues across the business are entitled to 1 paid volunteer day per year. This partnership is designed to support all colleagues find engaging, impactful and local opportunities.”
